Spin! Neapolitan Pizza Opens in L.A.


SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza has spread to the West Coast with the opening of its first franchise location in Southern California.

Opening in Orange, Ca., the restaurant will be situated near Honda Center and Angels Stadium of Anaheim in Orange County. The California restaurant opening is being operated by Hofman Hospitality Group, which has also completed a franchise agreement to open 37 SPIN! locations in Southern California.

By franchising, the presence of SPIN! continues to grow in the Kansas City area while these California locations develop. A sixth local location is in the works. With restaurants open and running in Kansas City, Lee’s Summit, Overland Park, Olathe and Lenexa, it’s difficult to go anywhere in the area without a SPIN! nearby.

Despite its numerous locations, the quality of SPIN!’s service and food remains very high. After traveling across Italy, the owners, Richard and Gail Lozoff, wanted to create a dining experience back home that embraced that fresh ingredients and rustic appeal of Italian pizza eateries. They and their partner, Edwin Brownell, collaborated with James Beard Award-winning chef, Michael Smith to compose a menu true to authentic Neapolitan pizza and appealing to many.

SPIN! was named 2013’s Breakout Brand by Nation’s Restaurant News and it was listed among the Top 100 Movers and Shakers by Pizza Marketplace. A crowning achievement places SPIN! at number one for Kansas City pizza restaurants in Zagat.

Their Margherita pizza was given the honor of being on of the nation’s best dishes by Restaurant Business magazine, but the menu offers numerous Neapolitan style pizzas to enjoy, such as Spinaci e Aglio ($10.45)—Spinach and Garlic—and Salsiccia di Pollo ($11.95)—Chicken Sausage. Crusts come in various styles, starting with the traditional hand-spun, thin-and-bubbly style to a gluten-free offering. Soups, sandwiches and salads are also available to cater to the more healthful, eclectic American palate.
