La Grange’s Aurelio’s Pizza Owner Looks to Expand His Horizons

"Fans of La Grange's Aurelio's Pizza will soon be able to get the food they love way down south in Florida. If you're from the Chicago area and have ever eaten pizza in Florida, you know this is a godsend," according to the Western Springs Patch. 

"Ross Barnard, owner of the Aurelio's franchise in La Grange, 11 W. Calendar Ave., will be adding a second location to the family's pizza business in Naples, FL. Ross and his son Andrew, with whom he shares ownership of the La Grange Aurelio's, said they are looking forward to putting in the work and splitting their time between the two locations.

"Florida is going to be a big market for us," Ross said at his restaurant recently. "When things slow down here, they'll pick up there."
