After 4 years of taking pizza to the people as the food truck Local Slice, we are so excited to announce that we will soon have a permanent home as Pizzeria Cortile in Red Bank, TN. Because Cortile will be a reflection of who we are, our guests will feel like they are hanging out with friends in the backyard.

We have been a part of the Red Bank community for many years, and now can't wait to have our business here as well. Central to most of the Chattanooga area, Red Bank is the prefect place for us. We are thrilled about all the new development, and are proud to add a new layer to the fabric that is Red Bank.

Pizzeria Cortile is our dream coming to life. Over the last four years we have been inspired by our customers' loyalty and love of our food. When we opened Local Slice we could only hope that people would be on board with what we were doing. We have been welcomed into the Chattanooga community with open arms. Making excellent pizza is only part of the equation, but the people we have met along the way have been our real inspiration. We are excited to now have a place where our customers can come and hang out, and we can get to know them even better.

Construction is well under way in our new space. The design of the restaurant features an open kitchen, centered around a beautiful handmade wood fired oven. The Acunto Mario oven was built in Naples, Italy by a third generation oven builder. As the backbone of the space and the heart of our operation, this oven will fill the room with energy that will make the restaurant come alive. Your participation in this project will go towards the purchase and installation of this handcrafted masterpiece.

We are working hard to make this happen quickly and with a modest budget. That's where you come in. We have seen such remarkable support over the years and hope that you choose to back this project. Kickstarter is all or nothing. If we don't reach our goal by the deadline, we will not receive any of the pledged funds. If you would like to participate, please do not delay. We have great rewards for all levels of giving, and we hope that you will consider participating in our project. If you are interested in a custom reward please email Rewards@LocalSlicePizza.com

Please share this with anyone you think may be interested in bringing Pizzeria Cortile to Red Bank, TN.

Thank you in advance,

Justin & Amanda Bennett

Risks and challenges

We have seen our share of obstacles over the last four years. We have been able to learn from everyone of them. Moving forward with a restaurant has not been easy, and we know that there are many risks associated with this kind of business. Running the food truck has prepared us to deal with all that is thrown our way, we are excited and ready to make this dream come true.
