Winner of Food Network competition show opens for business

WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - The Holy City Pizzeria is now open for business after winning a local competition of Food Court Wars.

The Food Network reality competition show was filmed at the Citadel Mall back in June.

The restaurant beat out the Charleston Gourmet Burger Company for a year's worth of free rent at the food court.

"I was shocked at how many people came up and said they had watched the show last night and they were going to stop by later on to have some pizza," said Topher Pecora with Holy City Pizzeria.

"It's been really great to see all the support from the Food Network and all of our fans in Charleston that came to see us," said Kacie Faulling.
