Fast casual’s proud iconoclast continues to challenge sector conventions with adjustments to each unit’s setting. A branch serving Washington, D.C.’s hip new “micro-hotel,” Hotel Hive, for instance, features a breakfast menu of sweet and savory a.m. pizzas, cold-pressed juices, yogurt and fruit. The chain received an infusion of growth capital last year from RSE Ventures, which &pizza has invested in talent development and opening units in New York, Miami and Boston, according to a spokesperson.
