A new fusion pizza restaurant has opened in the Herndon.
Pizza Twist, a chain with other locations throughout the country, opened at 13049 Worldgate Drive on Thanksgiving Day.
The restaurant offers pizza, wings, tacos, and pasta with a mix of Indian flavors. Options on the menu include a spicy lamb kebab pizza and butter chicken pizza.
Partners Amita Mahajan Singla and Nishika Nibber Bhanot opened the business despite a recent surge in COVID-19 cases and the recent closures of some businesses due to the pandemic. Singla told Reston Now she’s confident that the variety of food — including the inclusion of a full-bar — will help the business succeed.
“Our strong trust in our food led us to use all of our own personal savings to spend on this venture along with support from friends and family,” she said.
She says the restaurant aimed to preserve personal safety as different people — including contractors, vendors and government employees — entered the business as it geared up for opening. They had hoped to open their doors earlier but were stalled due to the pandemic.
Singla says all chairs, tables and high-contact surfaces are sanitized regularly and social distancing between patrons and staff is maintained when possible.
Pizza Twist offers gluten-free options and says its ingredients are locally sourced. More information about the restaurant is available online.
