Meet Our Subscribers—May 2015

PMQ’s circulation manager shines the spotlight on Cogan’s Pizza, FatPie Pizza, Pi Pizzeria and Fire Slice Pizzeria.



Fat Pie Pizza

 

Cogan’s Pizza

Eating at the ultra-hip Cogan’s, with two stores in Norfolk, Virginia, will give you “spaceman strength and endurance,” according to the company’s pulp fiction-inspired marketing materials. Cogan’s motto—“Pizza. Beer. Gorillas.”—grabs attention on a wide range of logoed merchandise, including T-shirts, caps and hoodies, while sidewalk signage draws the eye with original—and decidedly offbeat—artwork, and a green-skinned beauty with antennae sprouting from her head lures guests to the full-service bar. coganspizza.com

 

FatPie Pizza 

Located in Bellingham, Washington, FatPie built its reputation on Chicago-style pies made with a flaky cornmeal crust, but owner James Swift later added Detroit and New York styles to the mix. Swift’s company, the Raptor Group, also operates donut and ice cream shops in Bellingham, and Swift is known for trying to replicate foods he remembers from his travels or his childhood. Along with its elegant indoor setting, FatPie delivers dual-level rooftop seating in warm months. fatpiepizza.com

 

Pi Pizzeria

After noshing on fare from St. Louis’ Pi Pizzeria during a campaign event in October 2008, President Obama reportedly called the shop and said their pizza was the best he’d ever had. The White House later invited Pi’s team to Washington, D.C., to cook for the first family. Along with deep-dish pizzas, executive chef Cary McDowell is renowned for snacks like his Billy Goat Chips, pint of mussels and spicy pickles made with Huy Fong chili paste. pi-pizza.com

 

Fire Slice Pizzeria

Unique signature pies dominate the menu at this Amarillo, Texas, pizzeria that opened in 2009. The Green Chile Cheeseburger features marinara sauce, New Mexico green chiles, hamburger, red onions, and cheddar and mozzarella cheeses, while the Tommy Boy comes loaded with grilled chicken, roasted crimini mushrooms, artichokes, feta and mozzarella. Fire Slice also offers live music showcasing local artists, online ordering, catering, a loyalty club and beer socials spotlighting area breweries.  fireslice.com
