Boca Raton, FL – Crocker Partners, a full-service commercial real estate investment firm, has announced that Vivo Pizza + Pasta has opened its first U.S. location at Boca Center at 5150 Town Center Circle in Boca Raton.  Crocker also announced several additional tenants that have or will soon open, significantly expanding offerings at the center.

Vivo Pizza + Pasta is a quick casual concept serving authentic Italian cuisine with eight locations throughout Canada; Vivo opened at Boca Center on January 26 and offers dine in, take out and a Prendi e Vai (Grab n’ Go) market. Though the concept was born in Canada, all the chefs at the Boca Center location come straight from Italy, according to owner and operator Seth Horowytz.

“Boca Raton is full of energy and life, just like Vivo Pizza + Pasta, which is why we selected Boca Center for our first U.S. location,” Horowtyz said.  “We pride ourselves on good food, family, and good times; and we can’t wait to serve Boca Raton.”

The Vivo opening comes on the heels of the December opening of Peter Coppola Presents: Peter’s Place Hair & Color.  The opening marked a homecoming for Peter Coppola, 30 years after he opened his first Florida salon at Boca Center, returning to the exact same suite where it all began.

Peter’s Place Hair & Color, a 4,000 square-foot full-service hair salon, offers blow dry & style, color, hair extensions, keratin treatments, and other related services.  Coppola is most recognized as creator of the Keratin Complex and Keratin Concept lines. He began his career in 1968 when he teamed up with stylist Paul Mitchell to open the first American hair cutting salon.

Tenants opening soon include:

Agalia Fine Jewelers, which will open in March and is the latest expansion effort from owner Christos Vlachos, who has been a purveyor of high-end luxury jewelry goods since 1998. Well known and trusted by Boca Raton locals and Palm Beach socialites alike, Agalia has combined decades of experience in Fine Jewelry, GIA Certified Diamonds, 3D Custom Design and Swiss Timepieces. Agalia Fine Jewelers is an authorized dealer for many fine designer brands that will be showcased at their Boca Center store.

Waxing the City Boca, which is relocating from its current location on Glades Road to Boca Center. Opening the new location in the Spring, it has been supporting Boca Raton for over five years, with all their hair removal needs – from head to toe and everywhere in-between.

“Local residents should be on the lookout for even more announcements at Boca Center we will be announcing soon,” said Lindsey Alexander, Vice President of Leasing for Fimiani who represents Boca Center. “The high level of interest we have seen for Boca Center is inspiring with great fits for this community.”

During the pandemic Boca Center had two store openings, introducing locals to two brand new concepts in Florida: Copperfish Kitchen, committed to serving responsibly caught, sustainable and fresh seafood and shellfish, opened in June in the space formerly occupied by Uncle Tai’s; and Namaste Nail Sanctuary, the first-and-only nail services concept intended to ignite and induce “the relaxation effect” while delivering experiential, artisanal nail care, opened in October.

“For 30 years, Boca Center has been the premier gathering place where locals and visitors dine, shop and relax,” said Giana Pacinelli, Marketing Director for Crocker Partners. “With the addition of Vivo, Peter Coppola and our other new tenants, Boca Center continues to contribute to the city’s reputation as a world-class destination.”
