Grimaldi's Pizzeria has announced its latest expansion move into the state of South Carolina. Located in Mt. Pleasant Towncenter, the new restaurant will offer 4,000 square feet of indoor dining and patio space for 150 guests. The unit is expected to open late this summer.
"Our team searches the country for the best restaurant sites, and we're excited about opening within the Mt. Pleasant Towncenter property," said Joey Ciolli, president and 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 South Carolina and are excited to bring our New York style pizzeria to this region."
Grimaldi's continues to scout for additional communities in the region. The chain currently has 27 locations across the U.S., including Texas, Nevada, Florida, Arizona and its flagship stores in New York City.
Designed and built by hand, the coal-fired oven at Grimaldi's Pizzeria is the centerpiece of restaurants, weighing in at 25 tons and heated by 100 pounds of coal per day (cleanest burning fuel available and environmentally tested).
Grimaldi's also maintains the integrity of the water used in the original Brooklyn pizzeria by hiring a chemist to analyze and recreate the mineral content and exact composition, ensuring the dough tastes the same in other locations throughout the country.
