MAFIAoZA’s Franklin Owner Talks About Opening


MAFIAoZA’s Pizzeria and Neighborhood Pub just opened its newest locations at The Factory At Franklin. The new location will offer MAFIAoZA’s authentic Italian menu, as well as, 34 beers on tap and an impressive wine list (as reflected by its Wine Spectator Restaurant Awards since 2015).

MAFIAoZA’s Franklin is the third MAFIAoZA’s location (and second Tennessee location) for long-time partners Michael Dolan, Lars Kopperud and Brett Corrieri. MAFIAoZA’s has been a popular favorite on the dining scene since opening its doors in Nashville in 2003 and Birmingham’s Crestline Village in 2008.

MAFIAoZA’s Franklin has also renovated the bars both upstairs and downstairs and now features a 1920’s temperature controlled wine safe to house its fabulous wine collection. In addition, the new space will feature a banquet/catering room which will be available for private parties, company events/luncheons/presentations and general overflow seating for the restaurant.
