Nation’s Restaurant News speaks with COO Eric Greenwald about the chain’s expansion plans.
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria of Arizona is scheduled to open later this month a new location of its coal-fired brick oven concept in the Dallas suburb of Grapevine, Texas, bringing its total restaurant count to 26.
The Scottsdale, Ariz.-based chain’s Grapevine unit will cover 2,995 square feet with a patio and seat 129 guests.
“We see a lot of opportunity in Texas and are excited to bring our New York-style pizzeria to this region,” Joey Ciolli, president and chief executive of Grimaldi’s, said in a statement.
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria already operates eight locations in Texas, featuring hand-built coal-fired ovens that weigh 25 tons, consume 100 pounds of coal a day and heat up to 1,200 degrees.
