Famoso Inc., based in Vancouver, British Columbia, is celebrating the grand opening of Famoso Pizzeria + Bar Eastgate in Regina, their 30th franchised location. This is the third Regina Famoso location to open in the last two years, and the second since Famoso Inc. unveiled its new brand identity as Famoso Pizzeria + Bar.
Eastgate’s Famoso Pizzeria + Bar is the latest design that will be seen in all Famoso franchised locations moving forward. The newest location is a social gathering space, prominently showcasing their bar offerings, with a state-of-the-art center bar set-up and multiple high-definition televisions surrounding it, meant to draw a sports loving crowd and encourage social gatherings at the restaurant. Famoso Pizzeria + Bar Eastgate will also feature new kitchen amenities that provide an expanded pasta and appetizer menu, along with the signature custom tiled bell-shaped oven imported from Italy already seen in all Famoso locations.
“We are thrilled to continue our expansion into the city of Regina as we mark another milestone with the opening of Famoso Eastgate – our second official Pizzeria + Bar location,” said Justin Lussier, CEO and co-founder of Famoso Inc. “Famoso Rochdale was welcomed with open arms only a few short months ago, and we’re looking forward to the same warm reception by the city for Famoso Eastgate. Our success in Regina is a true testament to the supportive and tight-knit community here and we’re thrilled that Todd, the owner of the Eastgate location, will be able to share in this accomplishment following months of hard work alongside his team.”
Todd Taylor is the general manager and an operating partner of Famoso Pizzeria + Bar Eastgate. Born and raised in Regina, Todd is a local boy through and through and he brings his passion and love for the city and its people to Famoso Eastgate’s day-to-day operations. With over 25 years of professional management experience in both the restaurant and banking industries, Todd’s newest leadership venture at Famoso is a natural fit for the franchise.
“The opening of the newest Famoso Pizzeria + Bar is truly a dream realized for myself, and I have the entire Eastgate team and the larger Famoso family to thank for that,” said Todd Taylor, operating partner and general manager of Famoso Pizzeria + Bar Eastgate. “My family and I have always called Regina home, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to continue the cutting-edge service and quality that Famoso is known and loved for at Famoso Eastgate. We’re confident that we have the team in place to continue spreading the Famoso love and to keep Reginans coming back again and again.”
