Shaun Brobak opened his third restaurant this week, and this time it’s in a city other than Puyallup. The owner of Trackside Pizza and Crockett’s Public House, both in downtown Puyallup, has duplicated his Trackside Pizza restaurant in Sumner.

The Trackside in Sumner opened Monday at 1114 Main St.

One lure to expand, Brobak said, was the building. “We’ve found another unique building that will have the look and feel of the downtown Puyallup location,” Brobak said of the narrow brick building.

Consider this a duplication of the pizza restaurant in more ways than the menu. This restaurant also is near railroad tracks, a signature of the downtown Puyallup restaurant that is just a few feet from the trains. Part of the fun of dining there is feeling the trains rumble underfoot. At Sumner, those trains are a little more than a block away, but still in proximity to the restaurant.

Added Brobak, “It will offer the Trackside Pizza menu and 70 seats for dine in as well as delivery to the Sumner-Bonney Lake-Lake Tapps areas.”

Brobak opened the first Trackside in 2006. He opened Crockett’s in 2011.

Trackside isn’t the only restaurant in east Pierce County to duplicate nearby. In January, downtown Sumner’s Buttered Biscuit opened an outpost in Bonney Lake.
