Matchbox, the D.C.-based pizzeria chain known for its thin crust pies and miniburgers, is looking for the perfect Austin location, as reported by Austin Business Journal. Ty Neal, co-founder of Matchbox, told Eater that the company has its "heart set on Texas," with one in Dallas opening next year.

For Neal, Austin is a "hot city" with "lots of growth." Matchbox Food Group, the chain’s parent company, already looked in The Domain and downtown Austin for potential new sites. Once the location is set, the restaurant would open in approximately nine months. The group is also looking to set up shop in Denver, Philadelphia, Orlando, and Miami. There are impending locations for Virginia and Sawgrass Mills, Florida, too.
