Donatos Pizza Opens Second Location in Columbus’ John Glenn International Airport
May 15, 2018 // Franchising.com // COLUMBUS, Ohio - Donatos Pizza, an Ohio-based fast-casual pizza chain known for its Edge to Edge® pizza, has opened its second location at John Glenn International Airport in Columbus, Ohio.
The new location is owned and operated by Touchstone Hospitality IV, LLC, a Columbus-based hospitality and management company that also owns and operates the airport’s other location inside the Southwest Airlines terminal.
“We were privileged to open the nation’s first Donatos airport location a little over four years ago and remain grateful to the Columbus Regional Airport Authority for allowing us to grow our presence. We also appreciate HMSHost for their partnership and including us in the new Concourse C food and beverage program,” said Robert E. Lee III, who has spent more than 30 years in the hospitality industry, including the past four-plus years as a Donatos franchise partner. “We look forward to providing travelers with Columbus’ hometown favorite for breakfast, lunch and dinner along with a full-service bar featuring local craft beers.”
The new 1,800-square-foot location features a contemporary dine-in experience with 39 seats to serve passengers in Concourse C flying on Delta, Frontier, OneJet and Vacation Express.
The menu features Donatos’ famous Edge-to-Edge® pizza, with toppings loaded from one edge to the other, all atop a layer of aged provolone cheese. Each large pepperoni pizza boasts 100 pieces of pepperoni, and customers can mix and match from a variety of 25 toppings including fresh vegetables that are hand-cut daily. The new location will also serve fresh salads, oven-baked subs, and boneless or traditional baked chicken wings that are available naked, sauced or dry-rubbed. Breakfast pizzas and sandwiches, as well as Cup O Joe coffee is also available.
“We’re thrilled to open a second location at John Glenn International Airport,” said Donatos CEO Tom Krouse. “Our franchise partners from Touchstone Hospitality IV have been tremendously successful with their first store, and this new location allows even more passengers to enjoy Columbus’ hometown favorite as they travel to other places.”
