The popular pizza place is famous for their wood-fired pies.

Fire Works Pizza, the wood-fired pizza restaurant with locations in Leesburg and Arlington, is opening a third location. This time they’re coming to Sterling.

The popular pizza place is moving into the Cascades Overlook center, taking over the location currently occupied by Coal Fire Pizza. We’re told Coal Fire will be closing at that location Thursday, Aug. 30.

As first reported by the Loudoun Times-Mirror, the team behind Fire Works Pizza will spend the next several months giving the space a make-over with a target opening of sometime in December.

Coal Fire Pizza in Sterling opened just one year ago — August 2017. The Burn quickly learned that business was not living up to expectations, which an employee confirmed at the time. Apparently, things didn’t improve enough since then. We’re told all the other Coal Fire locations, including the one in Dulles Landing, are open as usual.

Meanwhile, The Burn has been hearing rumors about Fireworks searching for a second Loudoun location longer than The Burn has existed. We first heard it from a local commercial real estate broker back in 2013. Clearly, Fireworks takes their time picking just the right spot.

    Gah! Another pizza joint? Just what this area needs. Maybe the fact that Coal-Fired Pizza went under (I had one of their pizzas. I didn’t want another) should be a clue.

    Coal Fire was terrible, both food and service wise. Fire works will do much better in that space.

    I liked the food at Coal Fire, especially their sweet tomato sauce. But their service was very spotty and I thought the prices were too high for a pizza place. Although that might be a function of high rent at that new expensive shopping center.

    So Fireworks is definitely an upgrade.

    This is different. Their beer selection is out of this world. Bring it on.

    Interestingly Coal Fire did not go under. They still have 5 locations in Maryland and 2 in Virginia.
    And the realtor working the center was looking for a replacement for 6 months to replace them. Just like Ocean Blue they still haven’t found a replacement for.
