Kanz’s City Pizza and Burgerz is expanding.

The owners opened their first restaurant at 12804 Santa Fe Trail Drive, Lenexa, in January 2012. Now they are already adding an Olathe location, at 11180 S. Lone Elm Road, for a scheduled July 15 opening. Johnny Brusco’s New York Style Pizza formerly operated in the space.

Kanz’s menu items include pizza and burgers along with appetizers like its Chezzy Balls (meatballs covered in cheese, breaded and fried) and its cheeseburger salad (lettuce topped with seasoned ground beef, bacon bits, mozzarella blend, tomatoes and special sauce).

Owners Kevin Travis and Bill Degar plan to have three to five of the neighborhood restaurants in the next three to five years.

“You can get drinks anywhere but I think people really like our fresh food. We make everything on site except for the veggie burger,” Travis said.
