The culinary landscape of Katy is set to welcome a new flavor as Crust Pizza Co. prepares to open its doors at 24826 Morton Ranch Rd #800. This latest venture, led by Franchisee Dustin Goedde, marks an exciting expansion for the brand, known for its dedication to community engagement and quality dining experiences. Goedde, who also owns the Richmond/Aliana Crust Pizza location, brings a unique blend of military discipline and educational insight to the table, enriching his approach to the restaurant business.
Crust Pizza Co. has carved a niche in the hearts of pizza aficionados, offering a menu that marries traditional techniques with modern twists. Their pizzas boast a distinctive crust, crispy on the outside and fluffy within, topped with fresh, high-quality ingredients. This combination has garnered a loyal following, eager for each new location’s launch.
Goedde’s decision to open another Crust Pizza in Katy was driven by his desire to contribute to an emerging community. His first encounter with Crust Pizza highlighted the brand’s commitment to local involvement, a principle that resonated with his values. From hosting spirit nights to fundraise for schools and places of worship, to partnering with Saint Jude hospital for charitable causes, Crust Pizza’s ethos of giving back aligns seamlessly with Goedde’s vision.
Before embarking on his culinary journey, Goedde served in the Army as a combat engineer for eight years, followed by a 12-year tenure in education, teaching, and coaching at Klein ISD. This diverse background has equipped him with a unique skill set, blending leadership, teamwork, and community service, all vital ingredients for a successful restaurant operation.
With an eye on a September or October 2024 opening, the new Crust Pizza location in Katy promises to be more than just a dining spot. It aims to be a community hub, reflecting Goedde’s commitment to not only serving great food but also fostering strong community ties.
