Generous George’s Positive Pizza & Pasta Place, known for its "Pasta Pie" — a mound of pasta served on a pizza shell, has opened its first franchised location this week at the Dulles Station project in Herndon.

Northern Virginia entrepreneurs Lauren and Gary Crum became the first franchisees of the concept after securing the rights to open restaurants in Fairfax and Loudoun counties.

Teaming up with Ken Rose, an industry veteran, they decided on the Dulles Station project because of its proximity to a high density of both daytime workers and residential families, and its town center appeal.

Generous George’s is located at 2321-C Dulles Station Boulevard —west on Sunrise Valley Drive from Centreville Road — and can be reached at 703-793-3338.
