Earlier this week, Feraro's Jersey Style Pizza closed its location in the city's Patch neighborhood. But Ben Abel, Feraro's majority owner, says that not only is its south county sister thriving — but that the company is looking to expand.
"We're looking at a minimum of one new location next year, and then looking to see about opening more," he says. "We plan to move rapidly."In a way, Abel says, the closure of the Ivory Street location is a blessing in disguise. Before, the company had two vastly different models using the same name. The Feraro's in Patch was a dine-in setup, complete with a full bar. The Feraro's in Sappington — located at 11726 Baptist Church Road in an unincorporated part of south county — is mostly a carryout operation, with pizza by the slice or for delivery. There are a few tables, but it's not a place you'd linger.
