Nick-N-Willy’s, a Colorado-based dine-in/take-and-bake pizza chain, will open Sunday in the former Subway sandwich shop at Proctor and 26th Streets in Tacoma.

Local operator Chris Fox said his restaurant will be the first sit-down Nick-N-Willy’s in Washington, and will bake pies in a wood-fired hearth oven. The restaurant will also offer take-and-bake pies. The Nick-N-Willy’s in Puyallup is take-and-bake only, and the restaurant in Pasco is take-out only. Future locations are planned for Maple Valley, Mill Creek, Snoqualmie and Vancouver.

Nick-N-Willy’s 16-inch specialty pies start at $11.99 for cheese and top out at $20.99 for the five-pound family pie. Personal-sized pizza lunch specials are $4.99.

Fox said he’ll have a grand opening in late September or early October. He said operational hours "are kinda rough" but plans to be open seven days a week, approximately 11 a.m.-10 p.m.

Beer and wine are on the menu, but won’t be served until the state Liquor Control Board signs off on Nick-N-Willy’s permit.

Nick –N- Willy’s: 2602 N. Proctor St., Tacoma; 253-444-3060
