Chester gets new pizza restaurant

The city centre of Chester has gained a new pizza restaurant in the form of American Pizza Slice at 59 Bridge Street in the Grade II listed building that used to host a dessert shop.

While pizza establishments are fairly ubiquitous these days, the new restaurant is unique because it is the first branch of American Pizza Slice to open outside its home city of Liverpool. In 1998, Paul Canning set up the first shop in Whitechapel, Liverpool on a quiet corner after a trip to the United States. His aim was to sell large pizzas in the traditional New York style by the slice. He later opened two more shops in Liverpool on Bold Street and South Road in Waterloo. The restaurant now sells a range of New York, Detroit and Chicago pizzas, both by the slice and as huge complete pizzas.

The new Chester restaurant is Canning’s fourth establishment. On opening day, the chain announced on its social media channels that free pizza slices would be available to celebrate the opening:

“We'll be opening from 12pm today. Make sure to be the first in the queue for your FREE slice. Chester store only (sorry Liverpool). SEE YE THERE.”

The new shop adds to Chester’s extensive range of hospitality venues, many of which can be afforded on a relatively tight budget. Getting student accommodation in Chester city centre is a great way to be among it all, and you can often find shared accommodation with bills included and no upfront deposits or fees.
