Artichoke Basille’s Pizza Proudly Announces Second Arizona Location
The Concept’s Famed New York-Style Slices and Whole Pies Are Coming Soon to Phoenix, AZ
January 27, 2021 // Franchising.com // PHOENIX, Ariz. - Artichoke Basille’s Pizza, the nation’s largest and fastest growing New York-style pizzeria known for its authentic New York slices and pies, will open a new location in Phoenix in spring 2021. The new outpost, located at 6031 N 16th Street, Suite #1, in Phoenix, will mark the second Arizona restaurant for Artichoke Basille’s Pizza with franchisees Keith Bolognese and Ron Marino, who are long-time friends of Artichoke Pizza’s founders and fans of the New York-based pizza brand.
The Phoenix menu will star Artichoke’s authentic New York slices and larger than life whole pies in 11 varieties, including signature styles like the namesake Artichoke Pie and Crab Pie, plus traditional pizzas like Margherita, Pepperoni, and Meatball. The menu will also feature a full bar, salads, and lighter fare to pair alongside the signature New York slices. The Phoenix location will be 2,500 square feet and will pay homage to Artichoke’s original outpost with antique tin ceiling and exposed brick. Unlike the Tempe location, the indoor bar will feature more traditional touches with a wood back bar, lit glass shelving, wall-fixture beer taps, and a marble bar top, creating a cozy atmosphere within. Operable sliding windows will open on to the street, and outdoor seating will be available on a 400 square foot front patio.
“When I moved to Phoenix, I purposefully selected this area to live and become a part of this community,” said franchisee Ron Marino. “I quickly realized what a happening area this is, and felt that this community and neighborhood would embrace an Artichoke location, similar to the great reception we had in Tempe. I am thrilled to soon bring Artichoke Basille’s Pizza to the area, and share our high-quality pizzas and larger-than-life slices with more of Arizona.”
Founded in 2008 by cousins Francis Garcia and Sal Basille, Artichoke Basille’s Pizza specializes in serving an authentic style of pizza born and bred from fourth generation New York City pizzaiolos. Artichoke’s signature slices and whole pies feature a variety of toppings that range from the unique like artichoke cream sauce and Surimi crab meat to more traditional favorites like pepperoni, meatball, and ricotta. Unlike other fast casual pizza concepts, Artichoke’s pies are never made in a conveyor belt oven, but instead cooked to perfection in a more traditional deck oven. Their award-winning pizzas have attracted a cult-like fanbase of local New Yorkers, tourists, and celebrities alike, and founders Fran & Sal have garnered national recognition with appearances on The Rachael Ray Show, Fox & Friends, late night TV shows, and two of their own Cooking Channel series, Pizza Masters and Pizza Cuz.
Artichoke Basille’s Pizza currently operates 15 locations nationwide in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Arizona and California, with units in varying stages of development across the country.
