Kansas City, Mo.-based SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza plans to open two more Orange County, Calif., locations in Los Alamitos in December 2013 and in Huntington Beach at the Bella Terra mall in Spring 2014.
The Los Alamitos SPIN! will be located at 11122 Los Alamitos Blvd, and the Huntington Beach restaurant will be built at the Bella Terra outdoor shopping mall. The first Orange County location opened in May 2013, in Orange, Calif., at the Stadium Promenade near Honda Center and Angels Stadium of Anaheim.
Founded in 2005, in Kansas City, Mo., by restaurant industry veterans Gail and Richard Lozoff and Edwin Brownell, SPIN! has five locations in Kansas and Missouri with a sixth under construction.
SPIN!'s first franchisee, Hofman Hospitality Group, has plans to open a total of 37 SPIN! restaurants throughout Southern California during the next 10 years. HHG, headquartered in Signal Hill, Calif., also owns 18 Lucille's Smokehouse Bar-B-Que locations in California, Arizona and Nevada, and five Hof's Hut restaurants in Southern California.
"SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza's unique menu is rooted in authentic Neapolitan flavors but adds a modern culinary twist that is something new to Southern California," said Craig Hofman, president, HHG. "We anticipate that our guests in Los Alamitos and Huntington Beach will be just as delighted as our loyal fans in Orange have been these past five months."
SPIN!'s menu was developed in conjunction with James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Smith and includes Neapolitan pizza, appetizers, soups, salads, signature Panini and Italian deli sandwiches and gelato.
