Your Way Pizza opens at Macdonald Ave. and 15th St.

As promised, Your Way Pizza at 15th Street and Macdonald Avenue officially opened Thursday at 11 a.m.

The spacious, family-owned business promising to make pizza “your way” is operated by Bryan Rivas, his brother Eliezer Aparicio and their father.

It will feature a kids play area and has plenty of TV screens for sports and kids program viewing. Delivery, pick up and catering options are offered.

The restaurant will be open morning till night to accommodate BART commuters and is equipped with electrical outlets for folks wanting to plug in their computers.

“We’re really excited,” Rivas said about an hour before the business officially opened Thursday. “It’s a family-owned business, so we want the community to bring their family to have a nice meal, watch a game, have a fun time.”

Hours are Mondays through Fridays from 6 a.m. till 10 p.m. — early “so folks on BART can grab a coffee or bagel,” Aparicio said.

“And then obviously till 10 p.m. we’ll serve pizzas, burgers, sandwiches,” he added. “On Saturday and Sunday, we’re open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.”

The business initially opens with a license to serve wine.

“Instead of going to San Francisco, we want the community feel like they can stay home and enjoy a good time together,” Rivas said.


  1. Bravo and best of wishes to your new business! It’s good to see someone giving it a go there on Macdonald.
    Personally, I believe that if we hadn’t torn down so much of the downtown that we would be seeing a renaissance of small business today all along the avenue, but here we are.
    Again, I wish you success and hope your experience will encourage other businesses to the area.

  2. So happy to see Your Way Pizza open! More business and retail opportunities are coming very soon. An unfortunately combination of outside economic forces resulted in stagnation of development for a long time, but finally more is coming and the renaissance is happening. Organizations like Richmond Main Street are working hard to make sure the new development includes inclusive opportunities for community-serving businesses.
