Unlike many of the DIY fast-casual pizza spots among The Future 50, Patxi’s is a table-service chain out East that is known for its signature deep-dish pizzas. The thick pies are made by hand and baked in traditional revolving pans; thin-crust pizzas are made in a 900-degree Italian oven. To go along with pizza, the growing chain—which, following a 2014 investment from private-equity firm KarpReilly, added three new restaurants in 2015—offers a full bar. It also added a line of piadinis to its menu earlier this year in order to offer lighter options at lunch.
