The cities of Avondale and Goodyear have recently introduced some new businesses to the area, welcoming them with ribbon-cutting ceremonies in the past month. Here are the latest developments customers can now visit in these West Valley areas.

Parry’s Pizzeria and Taphouse

Location: 10485 W. McDowell Road, Avondale

Located within the Park 10 development, Parry’s Pizzeria and Taphouse opened its first Arizona location last month — and Avondale officials were there to welcome it to the city with a July 25 ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The Colorado-based chain serves New York-style pizza, wings, calzones, sandwiches, wraps, salads, pasta, and 80 to 90 craft beers on draft. Parry’s is known for offering its customers “the best craft beer value around.” Since opening its first restaurant in 2007, Parry’s has expanded to locations throughout Colorado and Texas.

It began as a New York-style pizza joint then quickly expanded into a chain after its reputation for craveable signature crafted pizza, wings and calzones at a great value.

Since, Parry’s locations have become a haven for craft beer, promising some of the best tap lists at all their locations.

The new location is built with an industrial New York warehouse feel, complemented with textiles and fixtures that allow customers to feel even closer to the city that never sleeps.

Parry’s offers daily specials, along with family and lunchtime specials that can be ordered any day of the week at a value price.

“Parry’s Pizzeria and Taphouse has found an exceptional location along the busy McDowell Road corridor,” said Ken Chapa, Avondale’s economic development and tourism director.

“Over the last couple of years, Avondale has seen this area take off, with unique offerings and exciting chains such as Portillo’s, Barrio Queen, Trapper’s Sushi as well as First Watch, the popular breakfast and brunch spot that’s opening soon. With other nearby amenities like Main Event and Home2Suites, it’s no wonder that this area is an Avondale destination for residents and visitors alike.”
