"We just learned about the lease a few days ago," said Nick Brink, general manager of Fong's Pizza at the downtown Des Moines location. "We hope to be open by (the April Drake) Relays."

The new location will have more of a focus on a pizza counter with pizza by the slice and by the whole pie, including the popular crab rangoon pizza made with a crab rangoon base, surimi (imitation crab), green onion, asiago and mozzarella topped with crispy wontons and a sweet chili lattice.

The Drake neighborhood is already getting excited about the new addition. A recent Facebook post from Peggy's Tavern read: "EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE WE’RE GETTING NEW NEIGHBORS IN MARCH!!!!!!! Fongs Pizza will be moving into the old Bordenaro’s location next to our beloved Tavern and right on time for the biggest party of the year: RELAYS 2019!"

Fong's Pizza recently opened another location in Cedar Rapids' New Bohemia District at 1006 Third Street, S.E. Fong's has another location at 1450 S.W. Vintage Parkway, Suite 120 in Ankeny .

Fong's Pizza is part of the Full Court Press, Inc. restaurant portfolio that includes El Bait Shop, Buzzard Billy's, Hessen Haus, High Life Lounge, The Royal Mile, The Chicken, Truman's Kansas City Pizza Tavern, The Chicken Orilla and University Library Cafe.
