One of the Oldest LaRosa’s Family Pizzerias Calls Milford Shopping Center Its New Home 

CINCINNATI, OHIO – May 28, 2019 – After nearly fifty years at 28 Cemetery Road in Milford, LaRosa’s Family Pizzeria Milford has relocated to a brand new LaRosa’s Family Pizzeria in the Milford Shopping Center.  LaRosa’s Milford opened in 1974, while the restaurant’s current owners, Butch and Rose Stertz took ownership eight years later in 1982. Having now owned the restaurant for 37 years, Butch and Rose believe that it’s time for a fresh take on their beloved community pizzeria. To better serve their dedicated guests in the Milford community, the restaurant is now more centrally located and has been expanded with a modern dining room and new décor. LaRosa’s Milford prioritizes community involvement by supporting local elementary schools including St. Andrews Elementary, St. Elizabeth Elementary, Pattison Elementary and Seipelt Elementary with fundraisers. “We’re so incredibly fortunate to have served the Milford community for 37 years, and can’t wait to offer our guests an even better family dining experience.” said Rose Stertz, Franchise Co-Owner, LaRosa’s Milford.  “There have been so many wonderful stories and memories with our guests over the years, and we look forward to creating more special memories in our new restaurant”, she continued.

            A formal ribbon cutting to open the new restaurant occurred this morning followed by the restaurant’s opening at 10:30AM; Mark LaRosa, LaRosa’s President and Chief Culinary Officer, Michael LaRosa, LaRosa’s Chief Executive Officer and Buddy LaRosa, LaRosa’s Founder helped to christen the new restaurant.  LaRosa’s diverse menu of over 40 menu selections are available in the dining room, as well as for pick-up or delivery. Along with its famous pizza, the menu includes calzones, hoagys, pasta, appetizers, salads, soups, desserts and special kids meals. The new full-service family pizzeria located at 975 Lila Avenue will feature a 140-person dining room and a Buddy Room for parties and events
