Randy's Wooster Street Pizza is excited to announce the opening of its fourth and newest express model restaurant in Berlin, inside the Irving Convenience Plaza on the Berlin Turnpike.
Berlin Town Manager Denise McNair welcomed Randy’s to Town. “Randy’s Wooster Street Pizza will be a great addition to Berlin to serve both locals and the many travelers passing through Town on the Berlin Turnpike. I wish owner Alex DePase much success in his new venture.”
Owner of Randy's Wooster St. Pizza Express-Berlin, franchising veteran Alex DePase, approached Randy last year with the idea of franchising the Wooster St. Pizza concept. After many meetings a partnership was formed and work began on preparing Randy's Wooster St. Pizza on becoming a franchised model for national expansion in 2013.
An integral part of their expansion will be Randy's Wooster St. Pizza Express restaurants located in non-traditional sites throughout the country (high end convenience, hospitals and universities). The Express locations will be supported by the traditional larger dine in restaurants where all the famous recipes are prepared. The Berlin location is the first Quick Serve Express model for the Randy's Wooster St. Pizza chain. Manchester, Southington and UConn locations are full serve dine-in restaurants.
Randy's has been featured on the television show Man vs. Food.
Many renowned creations have emerged from the city of New Haven, Connecticut. Among these nationally recognized innovations are the Pigskin Football, the legendary Frisbee, kid-craved lollipop, pez candy and the tasty hamburger. By far, the pinnacle of these creations is the unforgettable taste of the Great American Pizza!
The year was 1925, the place was Wooster Street New Haven, and history was about to be made. According to legend, a baker working on Wooster Street put tomato sauce to dough for the first time and the pizza was born! Since then, Wooster Street New Haven has made the thin crust brick oven pizza world famous. The overwhelming mystique and aura that lies on this quarter mile street nestled within the city of New Haven has been known to attract some of the greatest American icons for a sample of this historic culinary favorite.
Sixty-five years later a new Wooster Street has been constructed, Randy's Wooster Street Pizza Shop! Randy, working under the tutelage of the “Wooster Street Icon” learned this highly sought after "secret pizza recipe"! Now, Randy's with over 50 years of combined pizza experience is bringing this Old World traditional pizza right into your hometown. Keeping within the realms of the New Haven Style pizza standards, Randy utilized his creativity and his culinary expertise to produce a line of over 25 specialty pizzas. These pizzas range from the "mild" to the "wild" with a flare that is sure to satisfy even the most meticulous pizza connoisseur.
Maintaining a standard of excellence requires the use of the finest quality ingredients from throughout the world. The dough is made fresh daily from Seal-of-Minnesota unbleached, unbromated flour, which yields an award winning thin crust. A combination of handpicked plum tomatoes from the valleys of San Marzano, Italy, and sweet Chilean tomatoes, creates an unforgettable sauce. A custom blend of New Haven's own Calabro Cheese and Wisconsin's finest whole milk mozzarella generously blankets the tops of our pies. Keeping in the tradition of Wooster Street, these quality ingredients must all meet together in the blistering 600-degree heat and smoky ash of a "real" brick oven. After the smoke has cleared, what emerges is man's most delicious creation, the Brick Oven…. "ZA"…. "Apizza"…. "Hot Wheel"….The "P" Word….. "Pie"…. "Flat Bread", or for you traditionalists, just plain "PIZZA".
