Newport Beach, Calif. — Mountain Mike’s Pizza, a leading family-style pizza chain for over 40 years, has opened its Newport Beach/Mesa, Calif., location, the first to showcase the brand’s completely updated restaurant design and refreshed guest experience. Located on the border of Costa Mesa and Newport Beach, this new Mountain Mike’s is the first of two planned Orange County (OC) locations, with the second scheduled to open in Huntington Beach late summer. Newport-Mesa marks the second OC location with one currently operating in Lake Forest.
The Newport-Mesa restaurant is located just a few miles away from the brand’s Franchise Support Center in Newport Beach which serves as the company’s operational headquarters and the training ground for the executive and franchise support team and new franchisees.
The new prototype is inspired by the great outdoors. The 2,740-square-foot location features an arcade zone, two patios (one dedicated and one common area), flexible seating and partitions to create semi-private space for parties, a rounded bar top with 10 beers on tap, and big screen TVs throughout. Contemporary design elements include exposed wood and shiplap, modern light fixtures, picturesque mountain-scape murals and local accents such as a nostalgic map of Newport-Mesa.
To ensure diners feel confident about their experience, in addition to adhering to the strictest health and safety guidelines set by the state and the CDC, such as employees wearing masks and gloves, sections of the dining room have been blocked off to create physical distancing. Mountain Mike’s is open for dine-in, carry-out and contactless delivery. Orders may also be placed through any of Mountain Mike’s third-party delivery partners: DoorDash, Grubhub, Uber Eats and Postmates.
Mountain Mike’s Pizza, founded in 1978, has 200 locations across California, Oregon and Utah. For more information, visit www.mountainmikespizza.com.
