Emmy Squared, the Brooklyn-rooted specialist in burgers and Detroit-style pizza, has signed a lease for its first Philadelphia location, a company rep confirmed to me.
Timeline is “summer,” the rep told me.
Founders Matt and Emily Hyland of Pizza Loves Emily have three Emmy Squared locations, including the original, which opened in 2016 in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood. A newer branch is in Nashville, home of an investor. Others are planned along the East Coast.
Crain’s New York recounts the Hylands’ backstory, which starts in 2014 with the opening of Emily, a pizzeria. Things blew up when Matt Hyland added the double-stack burger to the menu.
