After closing for several months, Ledo Pizza reopened today at 1319H Rockville Pike in Rockville under new ownership. Longtime Ledo Pizza franchisees Sam and Jigar Sheth, owners of Ledo Pizza in Wheaton, signed on to expand their Maryland portfolio and operate the Rockville Pike location.
“My brother and I’s parents immigrated here from India to build their own version of the American dream,” Sam Sheth says. “In 1997, our parents opened a Ledo Pizza franchise location in Wheaton, Maryland. Our first jobs were working in that restaurant. When our parents retired, Jigar and I took over as operators. Ledo Pizza has always been a family favorite in our household, so now we’re very excited to open a second location in Rockville and bring Ledo Pizza’s delicious menu to our beloved community of Montgomery County.”
In addition to reopening in Rockville, Ledo Pizza is continuing to drive development across its home state with the recent execution of two new area development agreements. The brand added locations in LaVale and Woodmore to its pipeline, with the next restaurant expected to open in early July.
“Over the past 66 years, Ledo Pizza has become a staple in Maryland, and we are thrilled to expand our presence within this great state we call home,” says Ledo Pizza CEO Jamie Beall. “Ledo Pizza is a best-in-class brand with staying power, and existing franchisees are eager to grow with us. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for our brand as we continue to drive expansion efforts.”
