Grimaldi’s Pizzeria unveils its first-ever satellite kitchen, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria To-Go, in Scottsdale, which is now open. The new concept, offering delivery and carryout only, allows Grimaldi’s to provide its customers with an alternative, and convenient option as the demand for takeout continues to increase. This is the first location to roll out as the company scouts additional markets to expand its brand portfolio beyond traditional brick and mortar stores.
“In the wake of the pandemic and the growing trend of convenience-driven options, we felt the time was right to adapt and break into the satellite kitchen industry,” says Joseph Ciolli, CEO of Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. “With the growth we’ve seen in our to-go and delivery business, as well as the added convenience of these to-go only locations, this alternative model allows us to grow our brand in existing and new markets.”
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria To-Go is located on the southwest corner of Scottsdale Road and Shea Boulevard inside Kitchen United. The same pizza, calzone, salads and desserts are available as its dine-in restaurants, and offers the same seasonal dishes. Guests will have a full contactless experience at Kitchen United. They can order online for delivery or carryout or can walk in and place an order at the kiosks.
Kitchen United, opened in December 2019, is a 14,000 square-foot facility that houses 14 restaurant brands and provides individual commercial kitchen equipment and spaces. The concept allows restaurant operates to focus solely on the food, while Kitchen United takes care of the rest, including marketing, technology and more.
Grimaldi’s full-service Arizona location dining rooms and outdoor patios have reopened following federal, state and local health department recommendations in order to help ensure they maintain a healthy and safe environment for everyone who enters. Guests can also place carryout orders online or by phone, or delivery orders through third party services. Find more information on Grimaldi’s Pizzeria or your neighborhood location HERE
