Several hundred Loganites lined up tonight for free pizzas at the HomeMade Pizza store at 14th and Church NW. It was the first of two nights of a soft opening for the chain store. The official or “hard” opening is Thursday afternoon.

According to Eric Fosse, founder and CEO, HomeMade Pizza gave away about 250 medium-sized pizzas tonight.

“Word of mouth is the best advertisement,” Fosse said. The store will be giving out free pizzas again Wednesday from 4 to 7 p.m.

Located at the northwest corner of 14th and Church, the store is next to the soon-to-open Cork and Fork. HomeMade Pizza specializes in ready-to-bake pizzas for home.

  2. While I am glad to see any small business open, I don’t get it. Paying $15-$20 for a pizza only to go home and cook it yourself.
    If there were a big price difference, that would be one thing…but a pie from Petes in Columbia Heights delivered is about the same price.
