Billericay does very well for Pizza Express

Ian Dury famously sang that he was “Billericay Dickie – and I’m doing very well”. Also about to do very well in Billericay is Pizza Express, whose latest outlet has been bought from Strada through licensed leisure specialists AG&G.

The property on the town’s High Street was once an off-licence (and before that a grocer and “tallow chandler”) and has been listed because it’s a particularly fine example of a late 18th century/early 19th red brick town house, with three double-sash windows on each of the upper two stories.

“Pizza Express has come a very long way since its first restaurant opened in 1965. They certainly aren’t blockheads,” says AG&G director Richard Negus another of Essex’s finest!

“They now have more than 450 branches in Britain and many more abroad. Many of the UK outlets are in interesting buildings, so the Billericay acquisition is an excellent fit.
