OMAHA, NE — The opening of Copp’s Express is good news for Omaha!
Four short months ago, Copps closed the doors to its flagship location at 7204 Jones Street in preparation for the grand opening of its brand-new west Omaha location at 180th and Center. There has been no question that fans of the original Copp’s have missed anything but traditional and signature cream-cheese-based pies and savory wings, but owner Kris Copp has been keeping a bit of a secret.
The original Copp’s Pizza wasn’t going anywhere, they were just making some exciting changes, and is reopening on Thursday, November 17th as Copp’s Express!
Copp’s first opened its doors on Jones Street in October of 2019 and very quickly cemented itself as a fan favorite amongst the Metro area pizza scene. One year later, Copp’s opened a second location in Papillion’s Shadow Lake, in the popular space formerly occupied by Nebraska Brewing Company. The west Omaha Location opened in July of this year.
The newly renovated Copp’s Express will be serving its famous pizzas and wings but has now added burgers to the menu as well. Kris Copp is thrilled to be able to reopen the doors in the location that started it all, and has held firm to his mantra that “Restaurants are here to make customers’ days better through great food and service.”

Routinely voted among the best pizza in Omaha, Kris Copp is dedicated to serving quality dishes to raving fans. He has heard from countless fans of the original location they hated to see them leave the area for the suburbs of Papillion and Elkhorn. Admittedly, Copp has had difficulty biting his tongue and keeping the renovation and reopening quiet, but is thrilled to be reopening the doors and offering new fare.
“Give people what they need, not what you think they need,” he said”. “I’ve been incredibly honored to have been able to open a restaurant in Omaha” he added.
Copp’s humbleness is apparent, but his nonstop work ethic is as well. Now with 3 locations in the Metro, Copp’s is just getting started and we are excited to see what’s next!
In the meantime, they look forward to the all NEW “old” Copp’s opening its doors this week at 7204 Jones Street. Stop in or call Copp’s Express at 402-322-2219 to place your order. You’ll be glad you did.
