Location: 4447 W. Franklin St. in Bellbrook

Details: Gionino’s Pizzeria opened in Bellbrook on Tuesday, Sept. 5.

The 1,600-square-foot pizzeria offers takeout and delivery only. If you’ve never been to Gionino’s Pizzeria, they are known for their pan-crust pizzas made with provolone cheese and a sweet homemade sauce in addition to fried chicken.

Pizza and fried chicken aren’t normally paired in the Dayton area, but franchise owner Tony Clark encouraged customers to give it a try because where he grew up in northeast Ohio it goes hand in hand.

The Bellbrook location is open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday.

Gionino’s Pizzeria has two other locations in the area at 1528 E. Third St. in Dayton and 4015 Far Hills Ave. in Kettering. For more information about Gionino’s Pizzeria, visit www.gioninos.com.

The bubble tea shop is a franchise that started in 2007 with its first store in New York.

In addition, they also offer fizzy pop, which is similar to an Italian soda, but made with fruit juice.

Customers can order anything from milk teas and flavored teas to slushies and frozen lemonades.
