It's always great to see new businesses open, especially in a pandemic.  That being said, I'm so thrilled to share the news that a new pizzeria is coming to The Shoppes At Hooper in Toms River.  In fact, this will be the fourth of the "franchise" at the Jersey Shore.

Introducing Little Mia's Pizza, Toms River at 1822A Hooper Avenue.  I don't know if "franchise" is the right word but the name may sound familiar as there are locations in Lavallette, Seaside Heights, and Little Mia's Pizza II in Point Pleasant.  If you've been to one of their pizzerias, you know they offer more than a great slice of pizza.  As their site states they also have "great Italian food, pasta and subs all made to order, hot and fresh. Family owned and operated."  I spoke to Jose from Little Mia's and he said that they're so close to opening.  They have a couple of things left to do and expect to be open and serving delicious pizza within the next 2 weeks.

And their YELP reviews have some strong positives like Richard J that says, "Amazing hospitality. My party was welcomed with smiles and open arms. Served bread sticks and welcomed to the drinks.  Food came promptly and we were shown how the food was made and the garden in the back. Amazing place definitely recommend."  On behalf of everyone at Townsquare Media, welcome to Toms River Little Mia's Pizza.  We can't wait to try a slice!
