    A lot of new things in the works.

    New Location
    We are thrilled to formally announce the grand opening of our second restaurant! Located at 8950 University Ave. in West Des Moines, IA (just west of Des Moines Golf and Country Club), our new location will open its doors Tuesday, September 3rd. Come help us celebrate, and high-fives will be on the house, per usual. So come out and Get Some!

    Hiring Fair
    In light of the opening of our second location, on Saturday, August 17th Gusto Pizza Co. will host a hiring fair at the new restaurant located at 8950 University Ave. in West Des Moines. If you’re looking to work in a fun, friendly, energetic environment with good people and great food, Gusto Pizza Co. is the place for you! We will be hiring all positions, front- and back-of-house. There will be two interview sessions: 10:30 A.M. and 2:30 P.M. We hope to see you there!

    Fall Menu Changes
    At Gusto Pizza Co., we like to keep the menu fresh and seasonal. So on September 3rd, we will be adding some truly exciting, unique and delicious menu items, as well as welcoming back some old friends. From appetizers and salads to pizzas, beer and wine. Trust us, you’re going to love it.

    Of course this means we had to make room for the new menu items, so some of your favorite Signature Pizzas may be riding the bench this season. But don’t fret just yet, at Gusto we never say “Goodbye,” just “See you later.”

    Sweet Partnerships
    We’re pleased to announce our sweet new partnership with local bakeries Sweet Binney’s and Sweet Rewards Gluten Free Bakery. We’ve teamed up with each bakery to bring you the best desserts available in the city. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, be sure to stop by the dessert case on your way out (or on your way in—they’re that good!)
