Pepe's Pizza Plans to Open at the Burlington Mall in Burlington; Will Take Over Uno's Space

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like one of the best-known pizzerias in America is going to be opening a second Boston-area location.

According to a Twitter post, Pepe's Pizza is planning to open in Burlington, with a page within the site stating that the pizzeria is looking to open in the former Uno space at the Burlington Mall. A cover letter posted indicates that the proposed location of Pepe's would have just under 4,000 square feet of space and seating for 98, and it would be open for both lunch and dinner.

A Bizapedia page also confirms the plans for Pepe's to open in Burlington.

The New Haven-based Pepe's, which opened its first Boston-area outlet in Chestnut Hill late 2015, has received numerous accolades since it started out back in 1925, with The Daily Meal awarding it best pizza in the country in 2017.
