We’ve just opened for delivery on Prospekt Bolshevikov in Saint Petersburg. For me, it’s a special location. I vividly recall how I used to commute to the subway station at Prospekt Bolshevikov on those chilly “Petersburgish” mornings.  

In December 2010, before opening the very first Dodo Pizza, I worked for a few days in a Papa John’s that was located in that area. I had a dream—to open my own pizza shop and build it around an IT system.

At the beginning of 2011, I went back to Syktyvkar, my home city, with no money and some debt. Finally, in spring, a small pizzeria was opened in a basement. In the beginning, it was operating only for delivery. Now we deliver on Prospekt Bolshevikov. :)

Dine-in at Bolshevikov 2 is opening a bit later. It will be quite homey.
