CEDAR RAPIDS — In slightly more than two weeks, Cedar Rapidians will be able to grab a Crab Rangoon pizza from Des Moines’ own Fong’s Pizza.

Fong’s Pizza will open its location in the New Bohemia district, 1006 Third St. SE, on May 7, the restaurant announced on Facebook Thursday.

“Hip hip hooray, we’ve got ourselves an opening day! We will open at 11 a.m. on Monday 5/7!” the restaurant said in its post.

Full Court Press, the company that owns Fong’s, first said in January that it planned to bring the Chinese food-themed pizza joint to Eastern Iowa. Since then, the company has been renovating a space formerly occupied by Betas Restaurant.

Full Court Press opened the first Fong’s in a former Chinese restaurant in Des Moines’ downtown Court District. The NewBo restaurant is expected to have a similar style and already sports a sign bordered by a dragon, according to the Facebook post.
