SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza opened a sixth location in its Greater Kansas City home market. Known for its artisan food without the gourmet price and its affordable premium, SPIN! also has franchises in Southern California and the San Francisco Bay area.
The new 4,000 square foot restaurant, located at 8224 Mission Road in Prairie Village’s Corinth Square Shopping Center, seats 110 guests inside and 48 on a heated patio. The patio design takes full advantage of the center’s new waterscaping and unique overhangs for comfortable outdoor dining. Two bike racks make it convenient for cyclists to park their bikes.
“We are grateful to those who live and work in the area who expressed an interest in having SPIN! as a neighbor,” says SPIN! partner Gail Lozoff. “We are excited to open in this community center with its great restaurants and shops. Prairie Village has a real sense of community and we are thrilled to be a part of it.”
SPIN!’s new restaurant will feel familiar to those who have visited other SPIN! locations. Both the design of the restaurant and the menu are the same. The store design was done by Tracy Stearns of 360 Architects and SPIN!’s menu was created in collaboration with James Beard Award winning chef Michael Smith.
SPIN! is known for its hand-spun, stone-fired Neapolitan pizza and wide variety of salads tossed with dressings created in-house daily. In addition to a diverse selection of traditional crust, rustic whole wheat, and gluten-free pizzas, SPIN! offers other Michael Smith–created appetizers, soups, salads, and Panini and Italian deli sandwiches. SPIN!’s signature gelato program, which regularly rotates about 30 flavors, features gelato made in small batches.
All of SPIN’s toppings and ingredients are prepared daily. 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 every day using several types of flour, including one specially imported from Italy. SPIN! offers both traditional Pizza Rossa (red pizzas with crushed tomato sauce) and Pizza Bianca (white pizzas with roasted garlic olive oil glaze), and many hand-grated cheeses.
SPIN! serves a variety of affordable wines, makes its own white, red, and blood orange sangrias, and offers a selection of craft beers.
In addition to its wines and artisan menu, SPIN! is known for its hybrid service model, which combines traditional fast-casual ordering in the restaurant’s lobby with a full-service experience at the table.
This is the second national concept created by SPIN! partners Gail and Richard Lozoff, Edwin Brownell, and Michael Kramer, who are experienced in large multi-unit expansion, franchising, and operations.
