New Year, New Look, New Us!

We took the really difficult decision to close for two weeks in January. We realised that removing pizza from people’s lives in the darkest month was a cruel thing to do, but GB•PIZZA•CO needed a facelift. After four incredibly busy years – busier than we could ever have hoped for – the restaurant needed a new look, more storage and some much-needed attention.

Using our pink neon and grey pallet as inspiration, and local designers and makers to help us turn the vision into a reality, GB•PIZZA•CO reopened its doors on Wednesday 25th January 2017. The look? Kinda Margate meets Palm Springs and Beverly Hills, circa 1950.

With a bespoke neon piece using our “You Wanna Pizza Me?” logo – that’s been emblazoning our branding since we first opened in 2012; a mural designed by Margate hero Zoe Murphy; soft furnishings by local companies Browns Trimming and Lazy Goose; gorgeous worktops by Canterbury Stone; plus dusky pink metro tiles, brass trimmings and a brand new bar. The hard work was done by local building company Prime Contracting (South East) Limited.

Other shout-outs for support and being brilliant go to: JFK SignsMy Space Storage, Lobster Van Hire, signwriter Gary Wells, Frizzenti and Three Nations.
