Local franchise Manny & Olga’s Pizza plans to add new locations in College Park, Rockville, Brookland, and H Street this year. The pizza shop, which also sells wings, subs, salads, and gyros, already has ten locations in the Washington area plus one in Reno, Nevada.
President Bobby Athanasakis could not yet disclose the exact addresses as the leases are still being finalized, but he hopes to open all four locations by September, and the Rockville shop even sooner. Although the majority of Manny & Olga’s locations are carry-out and delivery only, Athanasakis says the new spots will have seating.
The family business was founded in 1983 by Athanasakis’s father, Manny Athanasakis, who immigrated from Greece in 1973. You can still find him working at the Silver Spring shop nearly every day.
