A veteran Charlottesville pizza shop owner hopes Richmond is hungry for seconds.

Christian’s Pizza leased the former Yogie’s Yogurt Shop at 404 N. Harrison St. near VCU last month. It already has its first Richmond location in the works in the near West End.

Owner Christian Tamm plans to open in the 1,400-square-foot space in June. Tamm launched Christian’s Pizza 14 years ago and sold off his pizza holdings in Charlottesville in favor of Richmond.

“When I came to Richmond, I decided to do a couple of stores,” Tamm said. “I sold the pizza places in Charlottesville and I’m a Richmond guy now.”

Tamm and partner Andrew Vaughn are a few weeks away from opening the area’s first Christian’s Pizza at 7003-A Three Chopt Road in the Village Shopping Center. The Harrison Street shop is a solo venture for Tamm.
