Northern California-Based Pizza Guys To Open First San Diego Location

June 8, 2022

Known as the "Home of the Specialty Pizzas," Sacramento-based fast casual pizza chain Pizza Guys will soon open its first San Diego location. 

Pizza Guys was founded by Shahpour Nejad and Reza Kalantari in Sacramento, CA, in 1986, and the company has since grown to more than 75 locations around California, Nevada and Oregon. The brand is in the process of an aggressive expansion in Southern California, which could include up to 15 branches in the San Diego County and surrounding areas. 

The first location of Pizza Guys will open in a former Pizza Hut space next door to Jersey Mike's on Garnet Avenue in Pacific Beach. Like other branches, expect a menu featuring an array of specialty pizza pies, like Curry Chicken Delight and Impossible Beef BBQ, as well as flatbreads, calzones, pasta, salads, wings, Cheezee bread & rolls, and desserts. 

Pizza Guys is expected to open by this fall at 1975 Garnet Avenue, Suite B, in San Diego's Pacific Beach. For more information, visit
