In the small shopping plaza stretch near Taco Bell and Dunkin Donuts, between Pearle Vision and One Main Financial, a new pizzeria is coming to Waynesburg. In a “prime location between the hotels and other restaurants” Owner Amanda Bibovic said, “We have already had people come in and ask for menus, and I hope it will be a hotspot.”
Casa Capri Pizzeria originated in Sparta, New Jersey, but has now branched off into Waynesburg.
Bibovic, a Waynesburg College alumna, and her husband, own two-thirds of the original pizzeria in New Jersey.
“My husband’s been in the business for over 20 years. We moved to this area because I am from this area,” she said. “We thought before if we ever moved back here it would be good to open a shop similar to the one in New Jersey, so we kind of just went by that.”
Having experience in the business helped the Bibovics prepare to open in an economy such as Waynesburg’s. Casa Capri will be a restaurant meant for dining in and for take-out, and will sell many different types of food.
“We will be selling pizza, Stromboli’s, calzones, paninis, subs, fried foods for appetizers, pasta, wraps and slices of pizza with different slices of pizza you can choose from off a display,” Bibovic said.
This set-up will make it perfect for college students and the town residents to be able to come in and get food quickly or sit down depending on time, Bibovic said.
The restaurant will also be offering catering options as a part of their business, and will be able to set up any catering options as soon as they open. Once Casa Capri opens, the hours for the restaurant will be Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Casa Capri will close on Sundays.
Bibovic has high hopes of opening Friday, April 5, but does not plan on having a “grand opening,” she said.
The restaurant passed an electrical inspection Tuesday, April 2, and Bibovic said they are now ready to open.
Bibovic’s husband will be the main cook for Casa Capri and will be assisted by a handful of other chefs that they have already employed. The Casa Capri team is ready to start their business in the town
The restaurant is still looking for waitresses and waiters and encourages anyone to come in for an interview to meet the need for employees.
