Harvest Pizzeria is set to open to the public on South Main Street in Granville on Friday, Feb. 17.

This marks the fifth location for Harvest and Chris Crader’s second project in Granville in the past year. He opened Station, a café in the former train station on South Main, in June 2022. Harvest Pizzeria is across the street at 454 S. Main St. in the former dance studio between the Granville Milling Co. and the Certified gas station. 

Between the two restaurant projects, Crader said he has invested $1.6 million in developing the properties. Located at the entrance to the village, they are among the first restaurants visitors encounter as they enter Granville. 

Harvest Pizzeria will source the majority of its produce and ingredients from local farms, purveyors, and chefs’ gardens, helping to support local businesses and the local economy, Crader said. All of Crader’s projects share this philosophy. 

 “I’m excited to offer some farm-fresh options for Granville,” he said. 

In recent months, the Harvest team has been hosting a pop-up pizza oven at Station. Harvest Pizzeria’s four other locations are in Bexley, Columbus and Dublin.
