After the Dunkin' Donuts deal fell through at Emory Village, Romeo's New York Pizza was quick to grab the prime space just steps from Emory University. With one location open in Johns Creek that opened in 2008, Romeo's will open in a portion of the former Emory Bookstore on Oxford Road early in the first quarter of next year. The lineup will now be Yogli Mogli on the far left, Romeo's in the middle and Chipotle Mexican Grill on the far right.
While the restaurant offers franchising, this location will be a corporate store. Romeo's features pizza by the slice or by the pie, as well as calzones, strombolis and assorted subs. The restaurant will also serve both beer and wine. With the nearest Fellini's Pizza being about two miles away on McLendon Avenue, Romeo's is well positioned to serve the Emory student market.
