Kansas City, Missouri, March 14, 2011–SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza has established its company offices in recently renovated space at 109 E. Gregory Blvd. in Kansas City, Mo. The building is owned by Chuck Schmitz, a Kansas City redeveloper of urban real estate in the midtown area. SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza will occupy 750 square feet of the storefront building—half of the total square footage. The other half of the space houses Lisa Schmitz Interior Design, who created the modern decor for both offices.
Recently named one of the nation’s top restaurants, SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza has four Greater Kansas City locations and plans to use the new space for a growing corporate office staff. SPIN! is owned and operated by Gail and Richard Lozoff and Edwin Brownell, who are experienced in large multi-unit expansion, franchising, and operations.
SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza is known for its exceptional, artisan food made from fresh ingredients without the gourmet price and its eclectic, affordable premium wines. SPIN!’s recipes were developed by James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Smith. The restaurant’s architecture won Best of Show at the Mid America Design Awards.
SPIN! recently was listed among the “Rest of the 101 Best Restaurants” in the nation by TheDailyMeal.com’s panel of 30 distinguished food and lifestyle writers, restaurant critics, and bloggers. The Daily Meal is one of the most heavily visited “foodie” websites in the country. SPIN! also has been named the area’s best pizza by Kansas City’s major publications.
In addition to its unique thin-and-bubbly-crust pizzas, SPIN! offers rustic whole wheat crust and gluten-free pizzas, appetizers, soups, salads, Paninis, signature Italian deli sandwiches, and Italian gelato ice creams.
All of SPIN’s toppings and ingredients are made from fresh produce and prepared daily. Even the salad dressings and soups are prepared fresh from scratch each morning.
The pizza dough is made fresh every day using three types of flour including one specially imported from Italy. All the toppings – such as mushrooms, caramelized onions, tomatoes, artichokes, even chicken sausage and turkey breast – are roasted each morning in stone hearth ovens made especially for SPIN! A variety of cheeses is hand grated. The menu features both traditional Pizza Rossa (red pizzas with crushed roma tomato base) and Pizza Bianca (white pizzas with roasted olive oil glaze). Customers can choose between a menu of 17 signature pizzas, and an infinite variety of SPIN YOUR OWN! Pizzas.
SPIN! serves a rotating roster of premium wines at prices well below traditional restaurant prices with most bottles $18 or less.
SPIN! also is known for its unique community outreach programs.
In addition to its catering operations, SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza has four Greater Kansas City locations at 4950 Main in Kansas City, Mo, 1808 N.W. Chipman Rd. in Lee’s Summit, Mo, 6541 W. 119th St. in Overland Park, Ks, and 14230 W. 119th St. in Olathe, Ks.
