Congratulations to the owners and crew at PizzAmore' in Grand Junction. This locally owned, family operated business just celebrated their grand opening.

Earlier today Tuesday, July 31, at 11:30 a.m., several members of the Grand Junction Chamber of Commerce, along with staff from Colorado Mesa University, gathered at PizzAmore' at 683 Horizon Drive.

Take a look at the gentleman holding the scissors during the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Does he look familiar? He should. He's been a restaurateur in Grand Junction for years. You may recognize him as Scott Coolbaugh, a former manager at the Grand Junction Chili's.

This isn't the first time a pizza restaurant has occupied this building. PizzAmore' opened at the site of the old Nick N' Willy's.

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.
From my point of view, this new restaurant is the real deal. I'm always excited to see a locally owned and operated "family" business opening in Grand Junction. They seem to be off to a good start. Here's wishing them many years of success.
