EDITOR’S NOTE: This story has been updated to reflect the new location at 3340 S. McCarran Blvd. is not the company's first-ever Nevada branch. Mountain Mike’s previously operated two locations in Reno, both of which closed nearly 2 years ago. The NNBW apologizes for the reporting error.
Mountain Mike’s Pizza recently opened a new Reno location, marking the Northern California-based pizza chain's reentry into Northern Nevada.
Located at 3340 S. McCarran Blvd. in the Mira Loma Shopping Center, the branch — the only Mountain Mike’s in Nevada — is owned by longtime company franchisees, Manpreet Rai and Kamaljit Singh, according to a May 17 press release.
“We’re happy to join the Reno community and invite locals in to experience the family-friendly atmosphere and mouthwatering pizza that has made Mountain Mike’s a household name in Northern California for over 40 years,” the duo said in a statement.
Mountain Mike's previously operated branches on Vassar Street and within the Mira Loma Shopping Center in Reno; both locations, owned by different franchisees, closed nearly 2 years ago, a company spokesperson confirmed this week.
The newly opened 3,300-square-foot location includes a kid’s area with arcade, several big screen TVs and a small beer bar. Patrons can order dine-in, carryout or delivery; orders may also be placed with various third-party delivery vendors.
“We’re excited to have officially opened our doors in Reno and are 100% committed to becoming a valued member of this wonderful community,” Rai and Singh said.
According to the May 17 release, Rai and Singh plan to open a second Reno location later this year.
Established in 1978, Mountain Mike’s Pizza has more than 230 locations across California, Oregon and Utah, with a vast majority in the Golden State.
