Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, with locations at 1 Front Street, Brooklyn, New York, and nationwide, announced the opening of two satellite kitchens. In partnership with Kitchen United, the takeout and delivery-only operations will be located in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Austin, Texas. For years, Grimaldi’s has set the standard for traditional New York-style pizza and memorable dine-in experience, with roots dating back to Brooklyn more than 100 years ago. Since then, Grimaldi’s has brought its signature, coal fired brick-oven pies to over 40 neighborhoods in 11 states across the country. Grimaldi’s continues to make history this fall with the opening of its first satellite kitchens, aptly called Grimaldi’s Pizzeria To-Go.

Through the partnership with Kitchen United, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria To-Go will make enjoying the restaurant’s pizzas, calzones, salads, and cheesecake even easier by providing a simple, virtual ordering process for takeout or delivery. During a time of evolution for the restaurant industry, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria To-Go aims to provide innovative value to its customers and showcase “the future of takeout and delivery.”

“Despite the turbulence that the restaurant industry has faced in 2020, we feel fortunate to have seen strong growth in our to-go business and are confident that the time is right to launch a takeout and delivery-only concept,” says Joseph Ciolli, CEO. “We look forward to growing this area of our business. This is only the beginning stage of Grimaldi’s plan to add more innovative ways to make it easier for our guests to order and pickup their favorite pizza.”

The inaugural Grimaldi’s Pizzeria To-Go in Scottsdale opened its doors in November within Kitchen United located at 7127 E Shea Blvd, Scottsdale, AZ 85254. A secondary location in Austin is currently under construction within Kitchen United located at 8023 Burnet Rd, Austin, TX 78757.
