Justin Bennett, the owner of Local Slice is set to open a new pizza joint in Red Bank: Pizzeria Cortile.

Join us for an in-depth conversation with Justin Bennett, owner of Local Slice, a Chattanooga-based street eats machine with a wood burning oven bolted to the inside of the truck. Bennett is poised to open a Pizzeria Cortile in Red Bank. His vision is to create a space where people will come to hang out and enjoy good food or drink. For now, take some time to dive in to hear his story of how working in his Uncle’s bakery on Monteagle eventually led to the opening of Local Slice.

Bennett hopes to open the restaurant by February 2017, but is seeking help via a Kickstarter campaign to finish the build out. Throw him some clams, and he’ll respond in kind with lots of slices of his signature pizza. Not a bad trade.
