Ohio-Based Pizza Franchise is Set to Expand in Dallas-Fort Worth in 2024

COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 14, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Donatos Pizza – the premium pizza franchise famous for its abundantly topped pizzas spread Edge to Edge® – is thrilled to announce its eagerly anticipated entry into the heart of Texas. This expansion into the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) area signifies a momentous step toward bringing the brand to a new and diverse market.

This milestone expansion is made possible through four dynamic franchise groups strategically positioned throughout the DFW region, initially opening up to 20 new Donatos Pizza restaurants.

With four dedicated franchise groups leading the way, and room for growth, we look forward to sharing Donatos Pizza with the Lone Star State.”

“Bringing Donatos to Dallas-Fort Worth is a historic milestone for us as we begin this exciting journey to expand the brand into Texas,” said Kevin King, President of Donatos Pizza. “We are looking to have yet another successful year in 2024, and this growth into Texas is just the beginning. We look forward to becoming an integral part of the DFW community through our promise to serve the best pizza and make your day a little better.”
