FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Successful Lexington Locations Lead to Further Expansion in Central Kentucky

CINCINNATI, OHIO – July 22, 2019 –  This morning, executives and franchise owners of LaRosa’s Family Pizzeria and Skyline Chili officially broke ground at the future site of two new restaurants in the City of Nicholasville, at 350 E. Brannon Road, on the Brannon Crossing area near Lexington Road.  The Cincinnati-based brands of LaRosa’s and Skyline have seen significant interest and excitement in the area, with the recently opened franchise locations of LaRosa’s, Skyline and First Watch on Richmond Road in Lexington, fueling continued expansion of the brands in Central Kentucky. 

 “LaRosa’s and Skyline are such a great combination for our guests.  The response in Lexington has been tremendous and now we’re going to plant roots in Nicholasville and become a part of their community.”, said Gary Holland, CEO of One Holland, franchise owner of the Lexington and Nicholasville Skyline and LaRosa’s.  “This is an exciting time for Skyline and LaRosa’s.  From our record-breaking sales on Richmond Road to our new partnership with University of Kentucky Athletics, we feel blessed to be here.  Even more exciting, is that Skyline, the Official Chili of UK Athletics, will be served this football season at Kroger Field and in Rupp Arena as well.   Skyline and First Watch are also the title sponsors for the season opener football game, when UK beats Toledo.  Go Cats!”, Holland exclaims.  

LaRosa’s 5,500-square-foot location will include dine-in, pick-up and delivery of its family-recipe pizzas and other Italian favorites with a 160-person capacity dining room. The restaurant will also feature a full-service bar and a “Buddy Room” for parties and events. 

Skyline’s 2,700-square-foot facility will include a traditional dine-in restaurant with a 96-seat capacity serving its famous Cincinnati chili, Coneys and Ways, with a drive-thru window. 

            The anticipated opening of the Nicholasville LaRosa’s and Skyline is Winter 2019/2020.  A Nicholasville Neighborhood Block Party for October is planned at the site for both restaurants to welcome the community and create excitement with free LaRosa’s cheese pizza slices and Skyline Cheese Coneys.  Additional details will be available in the Fall.
