The unofficial Pizza Pie Day (Feb 9) has passed but certainly Williamson County residents will be rejoicing when MAFIAoZA’s opens in Franklin at The Factory. Good things come to those who wait and the wait and construction is almost over and it includes a rooftop patio.
MAFIAoZA’s Pizzeria and Neighborhood Pub, Franklin will be the third MAFIAoZA’s 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’s 12South neighborhood in 2003 and Birmingham’s Crestline Village in 2008.
The new MAFIAoZA’s location will be approximately 10,000 square feet and will feature a renovated upstairs roof patio and new downstairs patio that overlooks one of The Factory’s courtyard areas. The new space will also have a front courtyard patio area with renovated bars both upstairs and downstairs. In addition, plans are to renovate the existing space to add a new roof over the upstairs patio area.
Future plans include lunch, Sunday brunch, live music and local delivery service for a two-mile radius from the new MAFIAoZA’s location. Plans are to partner with a local Franklin catering company to expand their Barolo Catering operation in the Franklin area as well.
David Pack, acting General Manager of The Factory states “We are really excited about MAFIAoZA’s decision to expand their super successful brand into Franklin and onto our campus at The Factory. Their artistic approach to food, emphasis on customer service, and commitment to community involvement create a great match for our recent and future cultural growth. They are a visionary group of people who understand what ‘good’ looks like and how to create it. This is going to be great.”
