The Italian Way Enters the Tampa Bay Area

Tampa, FL, December 11, 2006: THE ITALIAN WAY, a restaurant franchise known for its pizza, philly cheese steaks and chicken wings, is expected to open its 12th location in Florida at the Carrollwood Center on North Dale Mabry on the week of December 18th.
THE ITALIAN WAY, founded in 2005, has restaurant locations throughout Florida with 2 new stores opening last week in St. Pete and Wesley Chapel.
Carrollwood will be the prototype store for the company with Franchisees for the location being neighborhood owner’s so they can dedicate their time to quality and excellence along with community involvement, something THE ITALIAN WAY strongly believes in.
Corporate offices have also relocated to the Mall office complex behind the Carrollwood restaurant.
A lot of time and research has been put into this location said Rick Onderko, President/CEO of Franchise Concepts, LLC, parent company of THE ITALIAN WAY. He also says they are looking for aggressive growth in 2007 in the bay area.
Food and price appeal to our average customer and we pride ourselves in the freshness of our product, for example our dough is made fresh daily at each location, our chicken wings are fresh never frozen and WE DELIVER, says Onderko.
We also look forward to a 2nd season with the New York Yankees at Legends Field for Spring Training.
