FRESH Way Pizza, at 8460 164th Ave. NE in downtown Redmond is celebrating its grand re-opening with a “Your Second Slice is Half-Price” promotion until Feb. 15. It also invites community members to try its new, ready-baked pizzas as well as toasted sub sandwiches and crispy hot chicken wings.
Voted Readers’ Choice for Best Pizza in the Redmond Reporter’s 2009 “Best of Redmond” awards, FRESH Way started out selling U-Bake pizzas only, but due to customer requests, has added an oven which bakes an 18-inch pizza in only 3 minutes, 40 seconds.
“Therefore, FRESH Way U-Bake Pizza has become FRESH Way Pizza and is now offering our customers a choice of U-Bake or We-Bake,” said owner Heather Preston. “This allows us to participate in the baked marketplace, the ability to sell to those customers who prefer baked products … and also allows us to sell hot pizza by the slice. We have a very loyal U-Bake following and judging by our customer surveys and conversations, we feel we can be successful on both sides of the pie, so to speak. Whereas nothing changes for our current customers … everything changes for people who have not yet tried Redmond’s Best Pizza because they didn’t want to bake it themselves.”
Preston added, “One of the biggest reasons we’ve changed the model is because many local businesses including people from Microsoft and schools have said point blank, ‘if FRESH Way baked pizzas, we would order for staff meetings, group lunches and company events, etc.’ This was one of the biggest catalysts in convincing us this is the way to go.”
Any pizza on FRESH Way’s menu can now be ordered baked for an additional $2.50 per pizza, to cover the cost of baking and packaging.
Hot slices from the 18-inch pizzas are priced at $2 for cheese or $2.50 for pepperoni or Hawaiian or $3 for daily specials such as Mediterranean Chicken or Gourmet Veggie on Whole Wheat Crust.
FRESH Way also offers delivery.
