Grimaldi’s has certainly had time to perfect that perfect pizza eating experience. With over 100 years of business under their belt, they have a reputation for quality food and even better customer service! Originally opened in the Bel Air Mall in Mobile in 2015, they closed in 2019. This time, franchised by Power Brands Hospitality Group in northern Alabama, this new spot will join other Alabama favorites such as MELT and Taco Mama as partners with Power Brands.

“Grimaldi’s is well known as a top-quality pizza brand with more than 100 years of pizza-making history, and Power Brands Hospitality Group is the perfect franchisee to bring our New York-style pizza to Alabama.”

Joseph Ciolli, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria CEO

What you knead to know about Grimaldi’s

Planning to open by the end of the year, Grimaldi’s is opening their Jones Valley storefront in Valley Bend Shopping Center. They specialize in handcrafted, brick over style pizzas, calzones, antipastas, salads and desserts. There is something for everyone at Grimaldi’s. For those who like their pizza with a side of wine, they have a full bar that includes an extensive wine list and specialty cocktails.

“Together, we’re looking forward to creating life-long Grimaldi’s fans.”
