LEBANON, Ohio — Catch-a-Fire Pizza locations are spreading fast.

Owners Jeff and Melissa Ledford announced on Tuesday plans to open a new Catch-a-Fire Pizza location by summer 2021 in Lebanon's 511 North Broadway Development.

The pizzeria is the first tenant to be announced for the development.

The Lebanon store will be the third Catch-a-Fire Pizza in Greater Cincinnati. A second pizzeria is slated to open this spring in Blue Ash. The original Catch-a-Fire Pizza cafe opened inside MadTree Brewing's Oakley location in 2016.

"We selected Lebanon for our next location because of the historic charm of its downtown," Melissa Ledford said in a press release. "It represents a family-friendly, neighborhood atmosphere that we have always admired. We are excited to be a part of this special community."

The Lebanon concept will be similar to Catch-a-Fire’s Blue Ash location.

Guests will be able to enjoy a spacious dining room, exhibition kitchen, patio area and a bottle shop. Another feature of the new Lebanon venue will be a private party room where guests can reserve space in advance to host a variety of events.

The Lebanon menu will feature the specialty wood-fired pizzas that are on their menu at MadTree Brewing. They will also offer appetizers, salads, wood-fired entrées and signature desserts.

"Lebanon is a great city and we are really looking forward to being a part of it," Jeff Ledford said. "We have deep roots in Lebanon. My family is from Lebanon, and many of my relatives still live there, so we feel very connected."
