Manchester-based 900 Degrees restaurant opening second location in Epping
This week, 900 Degrees Wood Fired Pizzeria announced plans to open its second restaurant in the Brickyard Square shopping center at the junction of Routes 125 and 101.
“We’re really going to be offering something to an area that doesn’t have enough restaurants,” said 900 Degrees’ owner Priscilla Lane-Rondeau, a Manchester resident.
“The two ovens will allow us to get the pizzas out quicker,” Lane-Rondeau said.
The new restaurant will also have enough space to offer a private event room and will likely open a patio next spring.
The restaurant uses flour from Italy, and while local ingredients are used as often as possible, Lane-Rondeau said 900 Degrees uses a lot of imported cheeses and meats.
Given the success of the restaurant’s Manchester location, Lane-Rondeau said she began looking to open a second restaurant about two years ago.
She described her restaurant as a “showplace” that’s as much about the atmosphere as it is the pizza.
“I’m about the experience. I want the whole nine yards. I want the whole experience,” Lane-Rondeau said.
