Chamber hosts ribbon cutting for Pier 49 Pizza
The Springville/Mapleton Chamber welcomes the new owners, Andy and Tannie Hjorth, of Pier 49 Pizza.
Springville City has a rich history with love of the Arts. Arts of every kind, Paintings, Theater and Dance, and if you ask Andy Hjorth that art includes food, more specifi cally pizza. Pier 49 has been open in Springville for over 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 5 children.
Pier 49 Pizza’s specialty is a perfected sourdough crust that was created by Mike Dicou in the 90’s. Mike 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 (bbq chicken) you will have to come in and try all the pizza’s available.
As the new owners of Pier 49 Pizza of Springville, Andy and Tannie are creating a safe environment of fun and excitement where teenagers and family’s 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. Call them at 801-491-9111.
