We have three new pizza parlors opening soon. There will now be some 11 pizza places along a four-mile stretch on Post Rd between lower East Greenwich & upper North Kingstown RI. This is in addition to two on nearby South County road and several more up the road in downtown East Greenwich.
Just how much pizza can one eat?
In order - heading south:
New wood Fire pizza soon to open
Providence Coal Fired Pizza – soon to open
North Kingstown House of Pizza
Wood Fire Pizza - soon to open
NK Chicago Pizza
I don't know the population of the area, so can't really comment on your question with that in mind, BUT:
In our town in South Central Connecticut, approximately 40% of the restaurants are pizza, Apizza, or Italian who also serve pizza.
1 pizza place for each 2000 residents................
This is not unusual in the pizza belt radiating out from Pizza Central-Wooster Street New Haven-my birth city.
The town I live in only has 1 fast food chain restaurant, excluding locations in the mall food court. The Zoning commission doesn't want or approve the chains, but anyone can open an independent pizza place. NO Domino, Pizza Hut (except in the mall), Papa John, etc. Just mom and pop operations.
I probably eat pizza 2-3 times per week and that is not an unusual amount in this area.
The above doesn't take into account people such as me who have backyard brick pizza ovens.........
