SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza is opening its second Southern California location on January 21 in Los Alamitos. SPIN! also has six locations in Missouri and Kansas.

The new Los Alamitos SPIN! is being opened by SPIN!’s first franchisee, Hofman Hospitality Group (HHG),  which also owns 18 Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que locations in California, Arizona, and Nevada and four Hof’s Hut restaurants in Southern California. HHG plans to open a total of 37 SPIN! restaurants in Southern California during the next five to 10 years, including a location in Huntington Beach this spring.

San Francisco Bay Area franchisee Parker Hospitality Group has an agreement to open five restaurants in seven years in San Mateo County with an option to open another five in Santa Clara County.

With recipes developed in collaboration with James Beard Award–winning chef Michael Smith, SPIN!’s Margherita Pizza was crowned one of the nation’s best dishes of the year by a trade magazine, and its architecture won Best of Show at the Mid America Design Awards.

SPIN! is known for its food without the gourmet price and its affordable wines.

In addition to a diverse selection of traditional crust, rustic whole wheat, and gluten-free pizzas, SPIN! serves an array of appetizers, soups, salads, signature panini and Italian deli sandwiches, and gelato ice creams. SPIN! roasts all toppings and ingredients in its stone hearth ovens each day, including mushrooms, caramelized onions, artichokes, and even capers, pecans, pineapple, pine nuts, and pancetta. SPIN!’s pizza dough is made each day using several types of flour, including one specially imported from Italy.
