A new fast food pizza joint is set to open in the Franklin Heights neighborhood.

Pizza House, soon to be located at 2100 W. Hopkins St., a block north of Burleigh St., is owned by Issa Rabeh Hamed and Hazem Amro. The pair has worked in fast food and pizza sector for the past four years according to their food dealer license application. Neither owner responded to a request for more information by the time of publication.

The menu for Pizza House includes pizzas, fried fish, chicken, cheeseburgers, Italian beef Philly cheesesteak sandwiches, ice cream, milkshakes and cake, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page. The license application says the restaurant will provide delivery as well.

Both the name and the logo are similar to the chain pizza restaurant, Pizza Hut. The Pizza House logo on the restaurant’s Facebook page features red and yellow colors and a house above the font and a yellow dash below, similar to the 1999 logo from Pizza Hut (which has been streamlined a bit since then).

Pizza House will replace Haji’s Red Hot, another fast food restaurant that closed in 2020.

The 1,043-square-foot building was built in 1960, according to city records. The property is assessed at $31,700 and is owned by Sadaqat Ali.

Pizza House will be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Sunday.

    The headline incorrectly gives the location as NORTH Hopkins. It is actually on WEST Hopkins (as correctly stated in the story itself).

    Hopkins is a weird (unique??) Milwaukee street that has both east-west and north-south addresses.

    Coming from downtown, West Hopkins ends at 35th and Hope. Two blocks north, at 35th and Congress, North Hopkins begins.

    Put another way, any address on Hopkins lower than 3500 must be West Hopkins; Anything above 4400 is North Hopkins. (There are no Hopkins addresses between 3500 and 4400.)

    I grew up in that neighborhood and always heard that Hopkins followed an old Indian trail. I have no idea if that is true.
