RICHMOND, Va. (RichmondBizSense.com) – A Charlottesville-based pizza joint wants a slice of the Richmond market.

Christian Tamm and Andrew Vaughn are opening a Christian’s Pizza location at 7003-A Three Chopt Road inside the Village Shopping Center in March.

The 2,700-square-foot store off Three Chopt Road previously was home to a Cheeburger Cheeburger restaurant and will be the first Christian’s Pizza to open outside of the Charlottesville area.

Tamm came up with the concept in 2000 and has since helped launch four locations around Charlottesville.

Vaughn owns Rapture Restaurant & Nightclub in Charlottesville, which he launched in 1998, and owned a Christian’s Pizza near the University of Virginia before selling it in 2008.

“I loved the concept,” Vaughn said. “Honestly, I missed it.”
