Stephen Larck, who owns the restaurant with his business partner, Josh Weatherly, said applying for a liquor license is something they have wanted to do since they took over the restaurant in July 2022.

“Beer goes with pizza,” Larck said. “They’ve never had beer here before, so I think it will be a good draw to not only help our business but also give people a reason to come here, watch sports and eat some pizza.”

He said business is mostly carryout and delivery, but the restaurant seats around 60 people.

New York Pizzeria features New York-style pizza with a sauce and crust that stands out, Larck said. Customers can order anything from a 24-inch party pizza to calzones, strombolis and more. The restaurant also has daily specials.

Larck said it was the quality and fresh taste of the pizza that made he and Weatherly want to buy the business.

“We heard it was up for sale and we had eaten here and loved the pizza, so we decided to make that next step,” Larck said.

Larck is from Troy and Weatherly is from Eaton. Both previously worked in the Trotwood/Dayton area as managers for Wendy’s.

“The people of Trotwood have been very welcoming and very supportive of the transition to our company,” Larck said.

The restaurant is rolling out a new community program in which they plan to give back to area nonprofits. A featured nonprofit will receive 15 percent of their food sales from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the scheduled day.

New York Pizzeria offers delivery within a 4-mile radius or delivery via a third-party vendor like DoorDash, Uber Eats, Slice or Grubhub.
