Cubbies rebrand

Cubbies Chicago Style Pizza owner Jim Reed at his second location at 5701 Young St. in 2018. Reed will close his other location on Hageman Road in November to rebrand it as Zeppo's Pizza, which will offer a more Italian-style pie rather than the Chicago deep dish for which Cubbies is known.

Ready for the deep dish in local pizza news? Cubbies Chicago Style Pizza plans to close its northwest location next month for a rebranding.

The local chain announced the decision via Facebook last week, stating "Bakersfield is just too small for two Cubbies Pizzas."

In November, the restaurant at 9510 Hageman Road, Suite A will close for the rebranding to become Zeppo’s Pizza. The new spot will have a different look and menu, with a more Italian-style pizza along with pastas, salads and desserts.

Northwest diners can still visit that Cubbies through the end of the month, and take advantage of a deal for a free medium thin crust one-topping pizza with the purchase of an extra-large pie.

Cubbies' southwest location (5701 Young St.), which opened last year, will not be affected. For more on Cubbies, visit
