The Pitch expanding to Galloway Village

Posted online

Less than two years after opening at the Southern Hills Shopping Center, The Pitch Pizza & Pub is expanding to Galloway Village.

Bryan Bevel, who opened the restaurant in April 2017, said he’s targeting a launch this month for a food trailer next door to 4 by 4 Brewing Co. LLC.

“We’ve been friends with the principal owners of 4 by 4. Having come from the craft beer scene myself, I thought it was a good fit to add food to their craft beer brewery,” said Bevel, who previously co-owned Springfield Brewing Co.

On a roughly 100-by-150-foot lot just north of 4 by 4 at 3535 S. Lone Pine Ave., Bevel said he signed a land lease for undisclosed terms. The landowner is Ronald R. Shelley Trustee, according to Greene County assessor records.

Bevel said he’s working with the owners of 4 by 4 Brewing to build a walkway between the trailer and brewery. Outdoor seating also will be available for customers seeking pizza, hamburgers and speciality items, such as beer-battered onion rings, from The Pitch.

Work on the trailer is about 85 percent complete, he said.

Bevel said while the trailer is mobile, he purposely picked the growing Galloway Village area as home base.

“If the demand’s there, that’s fine,” he said of possibly driving the trailer off-site. “We want to be part of the local community down there. I didn’t want to go fishing, I wanted to go catching.”

Declining to disclose The Pitch’s first-year sales, Bevel said revenue came in ahead of expectations and “the second year’s been busier than the first.”
