Brixx Wood Fired Pizza expands into Georgia

Brixx Wood Fired Pizza will open a 3,223-square-foot location in The Avenue Peachtree City on Sept. 16.

Brixx appeals to a wide array of palates and dietary needs, offering gluten-free dough, vegetarian and vegan items. The restaurant bar features 24 beers on tap, including a selection of craft and local microbrews, 14 wines by the glass and gluten-free bottled beer.

The Brixx opening will culminate in a ticketed fundraising event from 5 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 16. Brixx is asking for a donation of $25 per ticket to HEROBOX.org, a national charity based in Tyrone that provides care packages and support for deployed members of the armed forces. 

A ticket allows guests to enjoy complimentary samples of Brixx food, as well as craft beer and wine during the event. Brixx will give 100 percent of the donations raised through ticket sales to HEROBOX. The Peachtree City location is the first Brixx franchise location in Georgia. Brixx Wood Fired Pizza is owned by New South Pizza Inc. There are 21 Brixx locations in N.C., S.C., Tenn. and Va. The first Brixx opened in Charlotte, N.C., in 1998
