They kicked off 2022 by opening their 100th store but the brand isn’t slowing down its expansion.

The East Kilbride outlet will open at 15 Maxwellton Avenue on May 23.

In 2021, they won the Rising Star Pizza Chain of the Year award at the PAPA Awards.

Fireaway’s phenomenal achievement is based on attention to detail combined with a desire to be different.



Founder, Mario Aleppo

Founder Mario Aleppo set out to create an unrivaled pizza experience by traveling to Italy and meeting farmers who now send him their best peeled tomatoes straight from Naples.

He then negotiated with mills in northern Italy who prepare the flour to his own specifications.

These are brought together daily to ensure freshness and baked for no more than three minutes in a 400 degree oven.

The appetizing menu Fireaway offers fans of pizza a choice of four bases, four cheeses, meats and 20 four trims, all available at the same price.

Among them is the Nutella Pizza, which is unique to Fireaway.

Mario said: “We like to innovate and have also introduced the full range of gluten-free and vegan options to ensure there is something for everyone.”

The new agencies are open from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m. seven days a week and are partners of Deliveroo, Just Eat and Uber Eats.
