This summer marks a decade in business for Laura and Seth Carey, the owners of Veraci Pizza. What started as a successful restaurant on wheels back in 2009, the husband-and-wife team found a permanent restaurant location in which to serve their delicious wood-fired pizzas, and they opened their doors to Veraci Pizza in Spokane’s Kendall Yards neighborhood in 2014. And they’ve been satisfying diners ever since.
“I think our commitment to keep it simple and build slowly has benefited us,” says Laura. “We have had multiple offers to try different things, or open additional restaurants, but we are committed to keeping things manageable, allowing us to have time to continue to build those employee and customer relationships which are so important to us.”
On the menu, of course, are their wood-fired thin-crust pizzas, fired up in their one-of-a-kind ovens. Hand built without a chimney, they provide a unique product you won’t find anywhere else. Guests can also choose from a selection of salads, appetizers, desserts, beer and wine, and, with the recent addition of a full bar, a variety of drinks. “Drinking an Aperol Spritz or the French 75 on the patio while enjoying the incredible view of Spokane and the river is a wonderful way to spend a warm summer evening,” smiles Laura.
The Kendall Yards Night Market takes place right in front of the restaurant Wednesday evenings, 5 to 9pm, May through September. Stop by to shop local vendors, and when you’re done, be sure to stop in Veraci to enjoy a meal.
Throughout the summer, you can find Veraci at area farmers markets with their mobile ovens, making their way to the Fairwood Farmers Market every Tuesday, Coeur d’Alene’s Wednesday evening market, the Thursday Market in South Perry and the Liberty Lake Farmers Market on Saturday mornings. Veraci is also available to cater your summer event or wedding.
Laura and Seth invite you dine with them at Veraci daily 11am to 9pm.
