New Jersey-based Flying Crust Pizza and Wings is expanding to Atlanta next month, and eventually to Conyers.

Owner Garis Eddington is in the process of building out the restaurant’s first-to-market location in space formerly occupied by Genki Noodles and Sushi, at 3186 Roswell Road NW.

Flying Crust could open by the end of June 2019, Eddington in a telephone interview Tuesday told What Now Atlanta.

“I used to live across the street from Genki and saw that the restaurant had closed,” Eddington said.

“The owners were planning on reopening, but we put an offer out there to buy the restaurant, and the owners accepted.”

Flying Crust, which got its start as a food truck, serves five burgers, 12 pizzas, and 14 flavors of wings, including the “atomic wings.”

There’s also a fish and shrimp po’boy.

On the restaurant’s lower level will be an invite-only speakeasy called Pierre’s Room.

Pierre is Eddington’s middle name.

The speakeasy will be open during major sporting events and is equipped with a full bar and space for 60.

Pierre’s Room can be rented out for private events.

Flying Crust will be open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m., and Sunday from noon until 10 p.m.

There will be live jazz on the weekends.

A Conyers location “near Mellow Mushroom,” at 1880 GA-20, is in the works, according to Eddington.

He would not disclose the location.

Flying Crusts are also planned in Houston (October 2019) and Detroit (2020.)
