Pizza chain plans BR, N.O. locations

Stevi B’s Pizza Buffet, an Atlanta-based chain, plans to open at least two restaurants in Baton Rouge and New Orleans in the next few years.

The chain is reviewing potential franchise owners and plans to open its first location within the next three to six years, said Stan Golovchuk, a spokesman for Stevi B’s.

Stevi B’s, founded in 1996, has more than 40 restaurants in Georgia, Alabama, Florida, South Carolina, Virginia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Ohio. Along with offering signature pizzas, such as a loaded baked potato, cheeseburger and mac and cheese, customers can order customized pies.
