Punch Pizza will arrive in Woodbury this spring.
The wood-fire pizza shop posted a note on its Facebook page saying it has signed a lease to open the eighth Punch Pizza in Woodbury. It's expected to open in June 2013. The post was accompanied by the city’s logo.
It will be located in the same building as FedEx/Kinkos at the northwest corner of Radio Drive and Valley Creek Road, said Jenny Nyquist, senior manager.
Punch has been looking for a spot in Woodbury for years, she said, and finally found the perfect location. A patio will also be built at the site, Nyquist said.
Punch’s Neapolitan pizzas cook in an 800-degree wood-fire oven and come out in 90 seconds, Nyquist said.
“And it’s just like you get in Naples, Italy,” she said. “A really great product at an affordable price."
It will have a similar layout to its quick-service locations, Nyquist said, adding that Punch is family friendly.
Punch Pizza has locations in Highland Park and on Grand Avenue in St. Paul, along with five others in the Twin Cities.
It serves a wide variety of pizza, and offers beer and wine. Salads are also on the menu.
