June 05, 2018 // Franchising.com // CINCINNATI, OHIO - Announced earlier this year, LaRosa’s and Skyline Chili are building two new full-service restaurants at 2890 and 2850 Richmond Road in Lexington.

Guests will drive through the block party as LaRosa’s and Skyline workers serve them hot, fresh slices and Cheese Coneys and give them free goodie bags, while supplies last.
“I’ve loved Skyline and LaRosa’s since I was a kid. We wanted to share the great taste, authentic family recipes and family atmosphere with our neighbors in Lexington”, said Gary Holland, Holland Restaurant Group, franchise owner of the Lexington Skyline and LaRosa’s. “Having a block party is a great opportunity for us to get to know our neighbors in Lexington and for them to get to know us and why the taste of Skyline and LaRosa’s is so unique”, he continued. The Neighborhood Block Party is open to the public and everyone in the Lexington area is welcome to drive-through.
In addition to free LaRosa’s cheese pizza slices and free Skyline Cheese Coneys, Lexington’s 104.5 The Cat and WBUL-FM 98.1 The Bull will promote the block party on air, and WBUL’s Amy Nic will host live from the construction site on Saturday, June 9.
