Austin Business Journal: Mr. Gatti's wants to take a bigger bite of the "eatertainment" market through an expansion of its GattiTown/GattiLand concept in Austin and Central Texas, as well as through growth of its franchise operations, including the hiring of a franchise development director.
In Austin, the company plans to open three to five corporate-owned stores by next April, some of which will be GattiTowns.
Mr. Gatti's has two of the "eatertainment" restaurants in Central Texas.
GattiTown and GattiLand, both the same concept, typically are housed in buildings that range between 20,000 and 30,000 square feet each. The GattiTown and GattiLand concept combines a traditional pizza restaurant with private party rooms, video arcades, carousels and other forms of entertainment.
