There's a new family-owned pizza joint on Horizon Drive in Grand Junction. They're open now, and the grand-opening is only days away.
 
Please welcome PizzAmore' to 683 Horizon Drive. Does that location sound familiar? It should. It's the old location for Nick N' Willie's pizza. You'll find them right next to Country Club Liquors in the Safeway shopping plaza.
 
PizzAmore' did a soft opening last Monday. Their grand-opening is coming up Tuesday, July 31.
 
I stopped by earlier today. As it turns out, this is a family-owned business in every sense. This is a husband-wife-son operation. As a matter of fact, it seems I know the owner. Scott Coolbaugh worked as one of the managers at the Grand Junction Chili's for years. I remember seeing him each year when we would host St. Jude Day at Chili's.
 
Personally, I love the idea of a family operation taking over this location. I don't know why, but it seems that "family owned" and "pizza joint" go hand in hand.
 
Looking at their menu, it appears they offer a wide selection. Not only do they offer a variety of pizzas, they also serve subs and sandwiches, calzones, salads, and a few dessert items. Here's a portion of their menu.

 According to the literature I picked up at the restaurant they offer dine in, take out, take-n-bake, and delivery.

Welcome to the neighborhood, PizzAmore'. No doubt many people will enjoy having a pizza restaurant back at this location. I'm looking forward to your grand opening.
