SLOVAK pizza chain Pizza Mizza opened its first pizzeria in Prague last November, the Hospodárske Noviny financial daily reported.

“We want to test our concept here and adjust it to local conditions,” said Jozef Šétaffy from GastroNet, operator of the chain, as quoted by the daily.

The company is now looking for franchisees for four other sites in the Czech Republic, according to its website.

Pizza Mizza is not the only Slovak brand seeing space for expansion in the Czech Republic. The Panta Rhei retail bookstore chain currently operates in the Czech Republic and EXIsport, a retail chain selling sportswear, also plans to expand into the Czech Republic.
