SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza welcomes its first franchisee
SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza has announced that it has completed an agreement with Craig Hofman, owner of Lucille’s Smokehouse BBQ, to develop 35 SPIN! restaurants in Southern California. Hofman, who has 15 Lucille’s locations in California, Arizona and Nevada, will be the company’s first franchisee.
Gail Lozoff, co-owner of SPIN!, commented, “We opened SPIN! to bring Kansas City a warm and fun experience of eating authentic Neapolitan style pizza with friends and family. We put a lot of effort into the 'behind the curtain' operations that give our guests that experience. We’re thrilled that Craig and his team want to take SPIN! into their home market.”
Award-winning SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza is known for its exceptional, artisan food made from fresh ingredients without the gourmet price. SPIN!’s menu is created in collaboration with James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Smith. Founded in 2005, SPIN! currently has four locations with two more under construction in the Greater Kansas City area. This is the second national concept created by SPIN! co-owners Gail and Richard Lozoff and Edwin Brownell, who are experienced in large multi-unit expansion, franchising, and operations. (kbp)
