Artichoke Basille’s Pizza is coming to New Jersey in 2019 with its first statewide location slated for Hoboken’s Historic District.
This is the first of five store openings in New Jersey planned by franchisees Premal and Leela Shanghvi.
“We are very fortunate and extremely excited to have found this location in Hoboken. We’ve been searching for the perfect spot to open the first New Jersey Artichoke Pizza for about a year now, and now we’ve found it,” said Premal Shanghvi in a statement. “The Historic District has a hip vibe and nightlife scene that is a great fit for the brand, while also being a popular area for Hoboken families, corporate businesses, and commuters who travel into the city each day.”
Artichoke Basille’s Pizza was founded in 2008 by cousins Francis Garcia and Sal Basille and has grown to 12 locations in New York, Miami, and Oakland, Calif. Additional franchise locations are set to open in Connecticut and Northern California.
The Artichoke Basille’s in Hoboken will be located at 96 Hudson St. The Shanghvis said they are looking at Jersey City, New Brunswick, Princeton and Newark for the four additional locations, but have yet to secure space.
