Sahara Pizza opening in Ballard

A new restaurant is moving into the building on the corner of 15th Ave NW and NW 65th St, a location that has been several restaurants in the last few years.

The new sign says “Grand Opening Sahara Pizza,” although there is still paper up over the windows. Sahara Pizza has twenty locations in the northwest and two in South America. This space will be the first in the city of Seattle. We tried calling the number, but it just rang with no voicemail. We’ll post more as we learn more.

This is bizarre…  I actually ate at this place when I was in Bolivia.  Don’t remember it being anything remarkable…

Thanks for the reminder:  it’s been awhile since I’ve been to Veraci pizza. I think it’s the only “remarkable” pizza around.

Perhaps it already opened and closed. That seems to be the theme to this space.  Quiznos was the only place that lasted longer than 6 months.

Good luck.  Worst location EVER for any small business.

Anyone know what’s going on at 62nd and 15th, on the NW corner (used to be a private mailbox biz)? From permits on the exterior looks like it’s going to be a restaurant.

” Sahara Pizza has twenty locations” … that’s fitting since this location has also had twenty occupants in the past few years.

I suspect it’s built on top of an old Indian burial ground… hopefully good pizza will appease any angry spirits.

Shall we start the betting pool for how many weeks it lasts before the ‘For Lease’ sign goes back up?

Great business plan, opening up a pizza joint across the street from a high school right after the school closes for the summer.

IIRC, another pizza shop failed there less than a year ago. Of course, that chain didn’t have any locations in South America, so I’m sure that will make a difference.
