Every year we partner with Network of Hope Pittsburgh Food Banks to collect non-perishable items to feed families in need during the holidays. Items can be dropped off at any Caliente locations. Drop offs of 3 or more will receive a free cheesinator coupon. Drive runs November 1 – December 23. Cheesinator coupon is valid through 1/31/24.
Plant-based sales are positively blooming, and by now, they’re less an of-the-moment trend and more a long-term shift in Americans’ eating habits. If you’re thinking of adding some plant-based proteins to the menu, take notes from these three brands that have incorporated them in thoughtful ways—and reaped hordes of new customers in the process.
PITTSBURGH (August 9, 2022) — Caliente Pizza & Draft House, after a decade growing its award-winning brand throughout the Pittsburgh region, is opening yet another location — and this one has seating for more than 68,000.
The eatery will be serving pizza from three locations at newly named Acrisure Stadium on the North Shore, beginning with the upcoming football season. Event attendees will find Caliente in the south plaza located below the stadium’s main video board, as well as on the east and west club levels.
“Every year, millions of people not only from Pittsburgh but around the world make it to the the stadium for games, concerts and major events, so there’s no better place for us to highlight our amazing pizza,” Caliente owner and founder Nick Bogacz said.
Caliente will be offering slices of cheese, pepperoni, and pepperoni and sausage pizzas to patrons, with a variety of beverages also available at the concession stands.
Moving into Acrisure Stadium marks yet another significant expansion for Caliente, which opened new locations in Sewickley and Crafton over the past year, bringing its total to seven restaurants.
“People may not have believed it was possible then, but when I started Caliente 10 years ago with one shop in Bloomfield, this was always one of my goals,” Bogacz said. “Seeing it come to pass, it’s truly a tribute to the dedicated employees we have and the community support we’ve enjoyed over the years.”
Caliente’s yearlong celebration of its 10th anniversary also has included special menu items and in-store events, including this summer’s customer pizza-making contest featuring special guest judge and former Pro Bowl linebacker Ryan Shazier. Caliente is also in the process of opening a central commissary for operations and food prep and is preparing for another major announcement in the weeks to come.
