The APIzza is perhaps one of the biggest mysteries of all the new restaurants being built in Logan. It is not a national chain but aspires to become one. The first location opened in San Francisco in 2019, and according to comments made to Eater San Francisco, the creators want to make APIzza “the In-N-Out of pizza.” The coronavirus pandemic has slowed initial growth targets, but new locations are starting to be built. It’s unclear at this point how many locations are currently open beyond the original on Fremont Street in San Francisco. The pizzeria concept offers affordable prices while using organic ingredients. The Logan location is expected to open this summer.
A new Café Zupas is coming to Logan and is currently under construction at the newly reconfigured 700 North Main intersection.
