Kansas City, Mo.-based Spin! Neapolitan Pizza plans to open three company-owned locations in the Dallas area -- its first company-owned restaurants outside its home market -- between November 2014 and May 2015.
According to a news release, the concept will open its first Dallas area location in Southlake, followed by Richardson, and the Las Colinas development in Irving, Texas.
Spin! Pizza also has three locations under construction in its home market of Missouri and Kansas, where it operates six company-owned locations, and franchises in Southern California, the San Francisco Bay Area, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota.
Gail Lozoff, one of the concept’s four partners, said in the release that entering the Dallas market is part of a careful, measured expansion plan.
“We believe that healthy companies have a combination of company-owned and franchise locations. We are growing very deliberately because it’s most important for us to preserve the integrity of our company and culture as we transport them to other markets,” she said. “Dallas appears to be a great match for our distinct, inviting, bustling atmosphere that attracts all ages, our artisan food with recipes developed in collaboration with a James Beard Award-winning chef, and our commitment to a quality guest experience.”
