Kansas City’s Spin Neapolitan Pizza has a new franchisee who wants to open more Kansas restaurants.
Top Spin LLC partners Brent Boles, Butch Eaton, Jim Klausman and Greg Schwerdt plan to open the pizzerias in Lawrence, Topeka, Manhattan and Wichita over the next five years. The first is scheduled to open this year, but the partners have not announced the city.
The Top Spin LLC partners are Kansas natives who have extensive business interests in all of those markets, including restaurants.
Spin’s pizza dough is made fresh daily using several types of flour. It roasts most of its toppings in olive oil and herbs in its stone hearth ovens, including mushrooms, caramelized onions, artichokes, capers, pecans, pineapple, pine nuts and pancetta.
Menu items include its specialty pizzas, flatbreads and spreads, soups, salads, sandwiches and gelato, all produced fresh daily. Spin’s recipes are developed in collaboration with James Beard award-winning chef Michael Smith.
It also serves a rotating roster of premium wines, as well as house-made white, red and blood orange sangrias and a selection of craft beers.
Spin’s unique service model also combines the convenience of ordering in the restaurant’s lobby with full-service experience at the table.
Spin Neapolitan Pizza was founded in 2005 and now has six area locations — Lee’s Summit, Lenexa, Olathe, Overland Park, Prairie Village and south of the Country Club Plaza.
Other restaurants are under construction, including a new Crown Center location and one in Overland Park’s Corbin Park, both scheduled to open in April.
Spin also now has a restaurant in Omaha, Neb. Other locations are set to open in Warrensburg, Mo., and Dallas, as well as in North Dakota and South Dakota. Franchisees also are expanding in California.
