A gourmet pizza restaurant is set to open in the location of the former Quiznos in the Sunchase Farmville Shoppes at 237 Sunchase Blvd. between the end of July and the beginning of August.


The restaurant’s manager, Lynn Ballance, said the restaurant would hire approximately 15-20 people. Hiring will begin in mid-July.

According to Danny Teachey — who owns the restaurant with his wife, Avery — the restaurant, Pizza World, is part of a small chain that was started in the Midwest that focuses on gourmet pizzas.

“Just out of the ordinary pizzas,” Teachey said of the style of pies. “It’s very dynamic and it’s Pizza World, because we have pizzas from all over the world.”

In addition, they’ll have traditional pepperoni pizzas.

The restaurant will also sell baked pastas, oven baked-subs, calzones, salads, chicken wings and desserts. Teachey highlighted menu items such as the “Big

“These two are going to be our signature ones,” Danny said.

He said the restaurant will have delivery, carryout and a small dining room. He says they have not decided as to the specific area they’ll deliver to.

According to Teachey, he signed the lease for the space May 1.

“So we’ve been building the restaurant for about two plus months,” Danny said.

He said all ingredients at the restaurant would be fresh.

Currently Teachey and his wife own seven Servicemaster locations.

The two are are from Camden, North Carolina. He has 20 years of experience in owning businesses, he said.

The restaurant will be open from 11 a.m.-midnight Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m.-1 a.m. on Friday and Saturdays.
