Fast casual restaurant chain Donatos Pizza has signed two new development deals to open new restaurants in Louisville, Kentucky, and Orlando, Florida, US.

The new deals, part of the company’s strategic growth plan, will mark its debut in Louisville and expand its presence in Orlando.

Under the first deal, Donatos will open two restaurants in Middletown and Jeffersontown in Louisville.

The first restaurant site is scheduled to open in 2024 while the second location opening is planned for a later stage.

Donatos Pizza president Kevin King said: “We are thrilled to reveal these new development deals, which mark a momentous step in our journey to bring the Donatos Pizza brand to more communities throughout the country.

“Entering the Louisville market and enhancing our presence in Orlando is a testament to the strength of our brand and the appeal of our unique pizza experience. We look forward to providing our famous Edge to Edge toppings and warm hospitality to these communities.”
