 Although Giordano’s serves “extra thin-” and “thin-crust” pizzas and a variety of sandwiches, it’s the stuffed deep-dish pies that are the chain’s signature dish. Those pies require a 10-step process to create even before cooking, including a second layer of dough above the “toppings” that is then adorned with sauce. When ordering at the restaurant, the menu cautions a deep-dish pizza could take 45 minutes or so to prepare.

In May, the chain’s CEO and president, Yorgo Koutsogiorgas, told this news outlet that the company is eyeing downtown Dayton sites for the home of its second Dayton-area pizza store, and is also looking to expand to Cincinnati and Cleveland. There is a Giordano’s location in Columbus.

The company has 75 locations, most of which are in the Midwest.
