Grimaldi's Pizzeria opens fourth Florida location in Clearwater


CLEARWATER, Fla. (Dec. 28, 2011) --- Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, famously known for their award-winning hand-tossed, coal-fired brick oven pizzas and calzones, fresh salads and delicious desserts has opened in the Westfield Countryside Mall in Clearwater. The mall is located at 27001 US Highway 19N, four miles north of Highway 60.

Just in time for the holiday vacation week, guests will experience Frank Sinatra crooning in the background, more than 100-years of pizza making traditions, and the tantalizing aroma of pizza and calzones baked to perfection in the signature coal-burning oven.

“We are very excited to open Grimaldi's at the Countryside Mall in Clearwater," commented Joe Ciolli, Grimaldi’s president and CEO. "We believe that Grimaldi's brings to Clearwater a unique dining experience that encourages guests to create memorable moments with family and friends. This opening represents our fourth new restaurant opening in Florida during 2011. We are on track to open additional restaurants in Florida in 2012.”
