Gino’s East brings Chicago deep dish pizza franchise to Arlington, to open May 4
Austin-based ATX Brands, an operator of breasty chain Bikinis, is expanding its slim waistline with a new franchise: Gino’s East, the iconic Chicago deep dish pizza chain. The first DFW Gino’s East will open May 4 at 1350 E. Copeland Road in Arlington, following recent openings in Houston and San Antonio. A fourth location is planned for Austin, with more DFW units to follow.
I loved the pizza at the original Gino’s East, but early reports from friends who visited the San Antonio store (and who also like the Windy City’s Gino’s) say the quality is not the same.
Damn. Can’t say I’m surprised though.
