Mr. Gatti’s is finally returning to Fort Worth next week. This new restaurant will also serve as a prototype design for future Mr. Gatti’s which the company has planned.
This newest location in Museum Place, is located at 3268 West Seventh Street. It will be the first in many years to go by the original Mr. Gatti’s name, and is part of the expansion plans laid out by Fort Worth-based, Sovrano LLC, when the company acquired Gatti’s Pizza just over one year ago.
“We have a number of platforms (Gatti’s, Gatti Town, and Mr. Gatti’s) but all have the commonality of serving great pizza and tapping into great memories,” said Michael Poates, President of Gatti’s Pizza, and both President and an equity partner of Sovrano LLC.
“This is not a rebrand or a relaunch, rather we are capitalizing on what made us successful in the first place,” he says. “We realized that in order to define our future, we had to go back to our past, which has always been about designing family friendly atmospheres, and serving high quality pizza at affordable prices.”
They are going back to their roots by returning to the same classic name, but this will be a brand new version with new menu items as well as layout, according to Jennifer Wersal, Marketing Director for Gatti’s Pizza. “New locations in Dallas, Richardson and North Richland Hills are already open, but the Museum Place store will be considered our flagship for Mr. Gatti’s.” she said.
The layout of the Museum Place flagship will be counter order from a chalkboard menu with tableside service. The centerpiece of Mr. Gatti’s will continue to be its rotary copper tiled, fire-deck oven. Patio seating will take in the view and be a draw for future hotel guests − from Museum Place’s next phase of construction.
