Grotto Pizza announced a new production kitchen site in Dover is now in operation.
Located on Rosemary Road, the building will centralize dough production and handle dry storage and food distribution for the pizza chain that started six decades ago in Rehoboth Beach.
The site will make in excess of two million pounds of dough annually for the 23 Grotto Pizza restaurants in Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.
The 9,800 square foot production facility has about 20 employees.
“We’re excited about the efficient hub-and-spoke capabilities at our new production facility and feel it’s the next logical step in our expansion efforts throughout Delaware and beyond,” said Jeff Gosnear, vice president of Grotto Pizza. “Dover is the ideal ‘hub’ due to its centralized location in the Mid-Atlantic region – permitting us to better serve our existing stores while concurrently opening up the door for new stores in the region.”
“Our journey originated from humble beginnings in 1960 in a pizza kitchen on Rehoboth Avenue., to now operating twenty-three locations in three states with over 1,800 employees during peak season,” said Dominick Pulieri, founder of Grotto Pizza. “The new production facility in Dover allows us to broaden the Grotto Pizza footprint in the area while strengthening our ability to create high-quality, consistent dough for our legendary pizza.”
