24 new jobs as new restaurant team prepares to stretch, toss and serve
5,000 pizzas in its first month
Pizza lovers in St Neots are in for a treat as PizzaExpress opens today! The new restaurant, which can seat 161, means jobs for 24 new team members including six pizzaiolas and 12 waiters and waitresses. An estimated 600 kilos of dough will be used in the first month as the team prepares to serve up 5,000 pizzas and 600 portions of PizzaExpress’ iconic Dough Balls.
Each PizzaExpress restaurant is individually designed – often using well known places, people or historical events from the area as the basis. The inspiration for PizzaExpress St Neots is drawn from the town’s location on the River Great Ouse, with bright abstract canvases accentuating the striking blues and greens found along a river environment whilst a series of screens and pendants have been created with freeflowing lines to reflect the motion of flowing water.
Paul Owen, manager of PizzaExpress St Neots, said, “We will have a beautiful new restaurant and can’t wait to show it off to our customers. We have a friendly and enthusiastic team who are looking forward to welcoming everyone over a delicious pizza. Our new restaurant will be a great spot for everything from a casual lunch or dinner to a special celebration – we’re delighted to be bringing PizzaExpress to St Neots.”
PizzaExpress has launched a new Spring menu which boasts classic Italian style and fashionable flavours, perfect for the new season, as well as a wider range of its low-calorie Leggera dishes which contain fewer than 500 calories. There are 10 new dishes including four new gluten-free options and a cheese-free pizza that is suitable for vegans.
Parents can now book a Kids’ Pizza Making Party. Children from the age of four to 11 will be transformed into mini-pizzaiolas, getting to stretch and toss their own pizza base, before topping it with their favourite ingredients. Once they’ve enjoyed their culinary creations, they will be entertained with games, Like Pin the Moustache on the Pizzaiolo, by their personal party host.
