Zalat’s New Takeout-Only Pizzeria Debuts This Month

This was always the plan for the new Lemmon Ave. location, even before the coronavirus dining room shutdowns

Dallas County’s shelter-in-place order isn’t stopping Zalat Pizza from expanding: the local chain will open its seventh location at 4007 Lemmon Ave., Suite B on Monday, on April 13.

Coincidentally, this new pizzeria outpost was never slated to have a dining room. It was always intended to serve as “cloud kitchen,” aka an outpost devoted solely to takeout and delivery. The newest Zalat location will serve up beef pepperoni- and pho-inspired pies for pickup and delivery via third-party apps.

“The plan for the new Lemmon Ave. location was always to serve as a cloud kitchen, and the model couldn’t be more appropriate given the current climate,” Zalat Pizza CEO and Founder of Khanh Nguyen said in a press release. “We’ve always had high delivery volumes to begin with, so we are adapting during this time to implement health standards and safety precautions for both staff and third-party drivers alike.”

When the new Lemmon Ave. location opens, it won’t have the late hours the brand is known for: this outpost will be open from 4 p.m. to midnight on Mondays through Thursdays, from noon until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and noon to midnight on Sunday 12 p.m. The plan is to eventually open until 4 a.m.
