Gatti’s Pizza Restaurant Set to Open in Killeen: First Franchise to Feature New Gatti’s Design

Iconic family-friendly restaurant features popular Gatti’s Pizza buffet and expanded entertainment center

Pizza lovers in Killeen are in for a treat as Gatti’s Pizza breaks ground at 2501 East Central Texas Expressway. Since Sovrano LLC purchased the brand two years ago, Gatti’s has opened a record number of corporate-owned locations, including five featuring the new prototype. Killeen will be the first franchise for the Gatti’s brand in seven years, as well as the first new prototype outside of DFW, awarded to local business entrepreneurs Wallace Vernon, Nancy Hennigan and Tad Dorro.

In addition to the traditional Gatti’s Pizza buffet and other menu favorites, the new family-friendly restaurant will feature an expanded 4500-square foot family entertainment center with 50-plus games. The restaurant is slated to open late December. Guests in the entertainment area will have access to their own food court, featuring pizza slices and Pepperoni Rolls as well as beer, wine and gelato. There will also be separate rooms for private events and birthday parties.

“We look forward to becoming an integral part of the community and expect the restaurant and the entertainment center to quickly become a popular destination for those seeking great pizza and fun served up in a family-friendly atmosphere,” said Michael Poates, president of the Fort-Worth based chain.
