Brick Oven Pizza Company coming to Port Neches

PORT NECHES — Brick Oven Pizza is coming to Port Neches.

Port Neches Economic Development Corporation approved an expenditure not to exceed $100,000 to Brick Oven Pizza Company of Port Neches Inc. at their Jan. 28 meeting.

State statute requires the city council to approve the expenditure, and Port Neches City Council is set to hold the first of two readings of the resolution at the 4 p.m. meeting Thursday at city hall, 1005 Merriman St. in Port Neches.

The second reading of the resolution will be at the Feb. 13 meeting.

City Manager Andre Wimer said the new restaurant would locate at 2701 Nall St.

“Previously this was a service station, and the property owner had removed the building and the new building will be constructed on the same site,” Wimer said.

The EDC money will go towards the construction and things that will stay with the building as opposed to items such as furniture or fixtures.

Wimer said the owner is prepared to move forward as quickly as possible and signed a 10-year lease with the property owner.

In other business, the council will discuss and possibly approve a 2020 street projects.
