The Round Table adds seat in Pacific Northwest
Round Table Pizza is pulling out all the table leaves to expand the chain, adding three locations in the Pacific Northwest, according to a news release.
The locations are in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon — Camas, Newberg and Bend. These locations are actually dubbed "Clubhouse" restaurants, which is a new variation on the Round Table concept that appeals to sports fanatics, families with youngsters, who want to play arcade games or kids' sports teams that need a party room. Sales at the new locations have been solid, Round Table Senior Vice President of Development Ted Storey said in a news release.
"Their success demonstrates that we're filling a need for a place where families and groups can gather for great food and drink in a comfortable, casual atmosphere," he said.
The Clubhouse concept expands on the original 60-year-old brand by offering guests the three Ps — pizza, pub and play. The restaurants feature open layouts and big screen TVs and arcades, where kids can burn energy while adults gather for big games or other organized celebrations and meetings.
"We see many customers coming in two or three times in the first week of opening, and our party rooms book quickly," said Storey.
The West Coast brand now has 450 restaurants in California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Arizona, Alaska and Hawaii with 20 Clubhouse locations open and 11 planned for this year.
