After long months of planning and anticipation, Andolini’s Pizzeria is OPEN in Broken Arrow’s The Rose District!
Our new location is at 222 S. Main Street, in the heart of the revitalized downtown. No matter the amount of planning, or the other experiences we’ve had building out a store, there are always some surprises along the way. For example, we had some guys sit on the benches we were having made to make sure they were a comfortable height for our patrons. Later, we realized all of our Test Guys were 6-foot-plus and, of course, that not everyone is more than six feet tall. That meant our benches had to be redone, and making that three-inch change caused a snowball of delays. We promise, now, that those benches are super comfortable for normal-sized humans.
To us, it was worth the wait. This Andolini’s Pizzeria is unlike any other in the Andolini’s family and it has plenty of space for special events and parties. The bar is nearly twice the size of our Cherry Street location, with 30 beer taps and nearly 100 beer choices available. Andolini’s Broken Arrow serves both our original Andolini’s Tulsa-style pizza AND our Napoletana pizza from STG Pizzeria. That means Broken Arrow’s completely open kitchen features both a RotoFlex multi-deck pizza oven and a Stefano Ferrara all wood-fired pizza oven.
The décor is a mix of the Cherry Street and STG locations with a nod to the unique history of the Rose District. Photographs of Broken Arrow’s Main Street from the early 1900s and reclaimed antique doors mix with the new construction to give the site both a sense of history and of style. We have plenty of patio seating and parking is available on the street and in nearby parking lots. We will eventually offer delivery once we get settled in our new space, and we’ll keep you posted on that.
The welcome in Broken Arrow has been warm, and we thank you for that, Ando fans.
Wes Smithwick, President and CEO of the Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce, said:
“We are extremely pleased to see Andolini’s open their newest location in the heart of Broken Arrow’s Rose District. If the crowds the past week are any indicator, they should expect a very busy location. Andolini’s brings an established, well-known regional brand to the area with many new menu choices. We are tremendously pleased that they chose our Rose District for this location.”
On our first day of business we had a long line before opening the doors and the restaurant filled in less than 10 minutes. We are so happy to be a part of the ever-growing Rose District and the Broken Arrow community, and we are grateful for the support of our fans, of the City of Broken Arrow, the Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce and Broken Arrow Economic Development Corporation, and all of our suppliers, vendors, employees, and supporters. It’s been a wild ride to get to opening day and we wouldn’t be here without you. #PizzaLove, indeed.
