In exciting news for pizza fans, the UK’s first vegan pizzeria has announced that it will be expanding its reach by opening a third restaurant, with Purezza Hove to open later this year.
Purezza launched with its world-famous Brighton restaurant in 2015, followed by a London site in 2018. The Camden branch is the UK’s largest restaurant, following an extensive refurbishment earlier this year. The new Purezza Hove restaurant marks a return to the company’s roots with a second branch in the city of Brighton & Hove.
With the popularity of the Brighton restaurant seeing long queues and wait times, Purezza hope that the new Hove branch will help to ease the pressure and allow more people than ever to taste its award-winning pizzas. It will also offer a range of cocktails, starters and a full gluten-free menu.
Tim Barclay, co-founder and co-owner of Purezza, said: “2020 was always going to be a big year for Purezza, and whilst the Coronavirus crisis was an unforeseen challenge, it won’t affect our plans. Purezza is a growing brand, but our home has always been Brighton & Hove. Before looking at national expansion, we’re proud to be able to give some of our more dedicated customers a brand new beautiful space in Hove to enjoy.”
The new site will also offer delivery services to the Hove and Portslade community, and will continue Purezza’s commitment to sustainability. The restaurant will be fitted out with reclaimed and upcycled furniture, and decoration has been completed with eco-friendly and organic plants.
Purezza Hove will open in late August 2020.
