Two national pizza chains are expanding into the Chattanooga market.
Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom will arrive first.
Northgate Mall officials say the franchise will open in the old Shane's Rib Shack.
They are currently renovating the building, with plans to open sometime this fall.
Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom offers hand crafted pizza and craft beers.
Customers can also visit the Dough Room to watch their pizzas being made.
Old Chicago has about a hundred locations across the country.
Pie Five Pizza has also signed a franchising deal that will bring a location to Chattanooga.
They have inked the deal with Fred Gustin and Kurt Guttshall of Quality Restaurant Concepts LLC which operate 60 Applebees restaurants in the Southeast.
They will open 26 Pie Fives in Alabama, Mississippi and Chattanooga.
Pie Five offers handcrafted pizzas with more than a million combinations of ingredients prepared in front of you in less than five minutes.
The first restaurant in the deal will open in Birmingham in 2015.
There is no timetable or location yet for the Chattanooga location.
