Springville’s Pier 49 pizza restau­rant has new own­ers


Springville City has a rich his­tory with the love of the arts - arts of ev­ery kind from paint­ings to the­ater and dance. If you ask Andy Hjorth if art in­cludes food, more specif­i­cally pizza, his an­swer will be yes.

Pier 49 Pizza has been open in Springville for more than 15 years, and Andy has wanted to own this lo­ca­tion for years. Andy and his wife Tan­nie de­cided last year that they were ready to start a busi­ness that could be mostly run by fam­ily. Andy grew up in Springville and Tan­nie in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia. They met in high school af­ter Tan­nie moved with her fam­ily to Springville. They have been mar­ried for al­most 20 years and have five chil­dren.

Pier 49 Pizza’s spe­cialty is a per­fected sour­dough crust that was cre­ated by Mike Di­cou in the ‘90s. Di­cou is the owner of the Pier 49 Pizza brand. Springville is just one of the fran­chises along the Wasatch Front. Pre­mium top­pings and unique fla­vors cre­ate piz­zas that are fla­vor­ful and amaz­ing. Each gourmet pizza has a San Fran­cisco theme; The 49er (dou­ble pep­per­oni), The Al­ca­traz (clas­sic combo), The Nob Hill (chicken gar­lic al­fredo), The Ghi­rardelli (ham and pineap­ple with al­fredo sauce) and Andy’s per­sonal fa­vorite: The Lombard (bar­be­cue chicken).

As the new own­ers of Pier 49 Pizza, lo­cated at 296 S. Main, Andy and Tan­nie are cre­at­ing a safe en­vi­ron­ment of fun and ex­cite­ment where teenagers and fam­i­lies alike can gather for great pizza. There will be karaoke nights, fam­ily game/movie nights, paint nights, bands on the week­ends and other events where you won’t have to travel out of town for en­ter­tain­ment. A full-ser­vice salad bar is now of­fered as well a soft serve ice cream ma­chine. De­liv­ery is also avail­able to Springville, Maple­ton, north Span­ish Fork and south Provo. Pier 49 can be reached at 801-491-9111.

A grand re-open­ing event is planned on March 26 from noon to 5 p.m. Come try Pier 49’s fea­tured piz­zas with $1 slices, $1 drinks, door prizes, DJ mu­sic, and a photo booth. One lucky win­ner will get one free large pizza per month for one year. Don’t miss out on this op­por­tu­nity to meet the new own­ers and see the changes be­ing made.
