Scottsdale, AZ, June 14, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, famously known for their award-winning hand-tossed, coal-fired brick oven pizzas and calzones, fresh salads and delicious desserts is announcing its latest expansion move into the city of El Paso. It has confirmed a signed lease at 889 Gateway Blvd., within the Fountains at Farah property. The location will feature a large dining space, a patio with 60 seats and a private dining space for 40.
Opening late this winter, guests will be welcomed by Frank Sinatra crooning in the background, more than 100-years of pizza making traditions, and the tantalizing aroma of pizza and calzones baked to perfection in the signature coal-burning oven.
“Texas is one of our favorite markets and we are overjoyed to be bringing Grimaldi’s to El Paso,” said Joey Ciolli, chief executive officer of Grimaldi's Pizzeria. “Grimaldi’s is about great food, impeccable service, and a relaxing atmosphere. We see a lot of opportunity in serving the people of El Paso and are excited to bring our New York style pizzeria to this region.”
Grimaldi’s pizzeria has shown tremendous growth in 2014 and has promised to continue their expansion plans throughout the country in 2015. Grimaldi’s Pizzeria currently has thirty-four locations across the US, including Texas, Nevada, Florida, Arizona, Colorado, California, South Carolina and its flagship stores in New York City.
In the world of pizza, Grimaldi’s is an institution that has garnered more awards than any other pizzeria in the country with more celebrity sightings than most 5-star restaurants. Using only the freshest ingredients, a “secret recipe” pizza sauce, handmade mozzarella cheese and dough, Grimaldi’s serves traditional pizza (as it began in Naples, Italy) in an upscale yet casual, family oriented pizzeria.
Designed and built by hand, the coal-fired oven at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria delivers a unique flavor and consistency that is just not possible from wood or gas ovens. Weighing in at 25 tons and heated by 100 pounds of coal per day (cleanest burning fuel available and environmentally tested), the oven heats up to 1,200 degrees. The intense heat of the oven evenly bakes the pies to create Grimaldi’s famous crispy and smoky thin crust that Zagat has voted best pizza year after year.
It has been said that the secret to true New York-style pizza is the water. Grimaldi’s believes that too, going to great lengths to keep the integrity of the water used in the Brooklyn pizzeria by hiring a chemist to analyze and recreate the mineral content and exact composition of the water to ensure the dough tastes the same in El Paso.
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria wholly owns and operates locations all national locations. Additional locations in Boise, Baton Rouge, Greenville (SC) and a location in Shreveport, Louisiana are expected this year.
Grimaldi’s offers guests a selection of beers as well as an extensive list of wines (by the glass and bottle) to complement their freshly prepared salads, hand tossed pizzas and calzones and famous desserts. For more information on Grimaldi’s Pizzeria visit www.grimaldispizzeria.com.
