LaRosa's to expand to Columbus

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

LaRosa's Pizzeria is planning to expand to the Columbus area, extending its reach beyond established markets in Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, Southeastern Indiana and the Greater Dayton area.

LaRosa's is embarking on a campaign to recruit potential franchise partners who are experienced entrepreneurs with demonstrated success in existing Columbus area retail businesses. The effort will particularly target those who currently operate other restaurant concepts who are looking to diversify their operations.

LaRosa's will celebrate the kick off of the campaign with "LaRosa's Perfect Pizza Meet & Eat," a free pizza sampling day on Friday, Oct. 26. LaRosa's mobile pizza kitchen will serve free pizza from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 8800 Lyra Drive, near Polaris Fashion Place. Along with serving potential franchise partners, it will be open to the public.

"We have so many friends in Columbus who urged us to come to town. Our Perfect Pizza Meet & Eat is our way of letting them know we heard them, as well as introducing our family recipe pizza to new friends in Columbus," said Mike LaRosa, CEO, LaRosa's Inc.
