Foodservice Management Systems (FMS) opened a new GattiTown this week in El Paso, Texas. This marks the return of Gatti’s Pizza to the market for the first time in three years.
The 45,000-square-foot El Paso GattiTown includes an all-you-care-to-eat buffet, a Midway arcade, VIP/birthday rooms, bumper cars, go karts and more.
The buffet features Gatti’s signature pizzas, Spa-Gatti pastas, a salad bar, baked potato bar and desserts. Diners can choose from three themed dining rooms: the Courtyard Café for relaxed, quiet dining; the Plaza Theatre, which shows movies and cartoons; and Gatti’s Park, featuring sports on the big screen.
The new unit’s 20,000-square-foot Midway arcade and attractions section includes state-of-the-art video and redemption games of skill, bumper cars, mini bowling, Go Karts, mini-Golf and more. Tickets won in these games can be redeemed at the Gatti’s Goods counter for games and toys.
FMS is expanding from 14 entertainment centers in three states to 18 in five states. Besides the El Paso store, the other three new FMS entertainment centers are located in Lafayette, La., Oklahoma City, Okla. and Sugarland, Texas. All are larger than the current GattiTown footprint, ranging from 45,000 to 60,000 square feet apiece.
Gatti’s Pizza and GattiTown is owned by Austin, Texas-based Mr. Gatti’s LP, which first opened in 1969.
