A familiar name will be bringing more than 40 years of pizza industry experience into the take & bake pizza arena this spring.

Ron Gartlan, best known for his pizza chain, says he sees a bright future for Godfather’s Pizza Inc. “As one of the leaders in the industry, we have to look at every possibility of driving our business forward by meeting and exceeding the ever-changing needs of our consumers. We feel bringing our expertise into the take-and-bake pizza market will be one of the ways we can do just that,” says the chief executive officer and president of Godfather's Pizza, Inc.

Godfather’s Pizza Inc. is set to introduce the new Big Vinny’s Take & Bake Pizza restaurant this spring when the first restaurant opens in Lincoln, Nebraska. The concept will prepare pizzas tailored to each customer’s preference that can later be baked in the comforts of their own home.

Customers will be able to choose their own crust (Traditional or Thin), sauces (Signature, Alfredo Garlic, Garlic Oil, BBQ, Buffalo, Tex-Mex, Pesto) and meat, veggie, and cheese toppings to create their own pizza. In addition to the Create Your Own Pizza options, the new restaurant will offer Specialty Pizzas such as the The Big Vinny, Fiesta, Hawaiian, and Greek pizzas. Salads, Cheesesticks, and Cookie Dough are among the sides being offered. The concept will also offer Pesto Chicken, Alfredo Chicken, Primavera, and Italian Meat Trio pizzas that contain 25 percent fewer calories than the restaurant’s traditional crust pizzas. These items can be found under the Skinny Vinny Lite Pizzas portion of their menu.

All products will include detailed cooking instructions. Prices will be comparable to other take-and-bake style restaurants.

Future expansion is planned in Lincoln and the surrounding areas.
