A help-wanted sign went up next to Sugarfish on Ventura Boulevard this past weekend! 🍕
Could this be a sign of the DJ and producer’s Pizzaoki going brick and mortar?
Back in July, we reported that Steve Aoki launched a pizza joint that only delivers through services like Postmates, Doordash, and UberEats. Four months in and suspicion is on the rise about the celebrity ran co-operation opening a storefront in Studio City after an Eater LA reporter spotted a “Pizzaoki: Help Wanted” sign on a window.
Aoki and his business partner, Lawrence Vavra, have kept their plan of becoming the next big name in the pizza delivery game no secret. The duo plans to shift from operating out of LA service kitchens to having seven additional SoCal locations before the end of the year. They also plan to launch 15 to 20 shops in cities such as San Diego, San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, Boston, Chicago, Miami, and New York City beyond 2018.
Who knows what’s going on, but if it has anything to do with having more pizza available for Angelenos… count us in!
