The world’s largest pizza slice is headed to the Houston area

A Louisiana restaurant that claims to serve “the world’s largest slice of pizza” has set its sights on Houston. Fat Boy Pizza It will open its first location in the Houston area of ​​Richmond at The Grand at Aliana, a development located at the intersection of W. Airport Boulevard and Grand Parkway.

Scheduled to open by the end of 2022, the 4,800-square-foot restaurant will also provide a 1,500-square-foot patio adjacent to the project’s green space. Offering outdoor seating is critical to Fat Boy’s Houston expansion plans, local real estate broker Thomas Nguyen told CultureMap in an email.

Nguyen writes, “The Houston locations we choose also feature huge courtyards. While Houston is brimming with quality standards of quick service pizza and delivery concepts, it’s surprising that not many pizza concepts have huge patios and bars.”

To Nguyen’s point, Fat Boy’s offers a full range of beer, wine, and cocktails, including daiquiris by the gallon.

Moving on to the food, the vaunted slices of the namesake pizza come from the 30-inch Fat Boy. The restaurant offers all the usual combinations (pepperoni, meat lovers, veggies, supreme, etc) as well as BBQ chicken, buffalo chicken, calzone, and stromboli. Appetizers like wings, meatballs, and fried mozzarella sticks join salads as non-pizza options.

“Our pizza is unique and our restaurant is unique,” Texas COO George Malik said in a statement. “Visiting Fat Boy’s Pizza is an experience you will talk about with your friends and look forward to repeating.”

To bring Metairie to Houston, founder Gabe Corchiani partnered with entrepreneur Shane Guidry. Known for his work as CEO of shipping company Harvey Gulf International Marine, Guidry attracted some media attention last year when he put his nearly 15,000-square-foot mansion on the market for about $17 million, but we digress. He obviously brings significant resources to Fat Boy’s plans for Houston.

“We look forward to providing a family dining experience that will add to all that Houston has to offer,” Guidry added. “Fat Boy’s entry into this region is exciting and our partnership with the Corchiani family is equally exciting.”

The Richmond location joins the original Fat Boy restaurant in Metairie along with Louisiana stores in Baton Rouge, Covington, and New Orleans’ French Quarter. It opened its first out-of-state location in March in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
