A Cincinnati-based pizza chain plans to open in Dublin in the former Cici's Pizza location.
Columbus resident Brandon Salamone last week announced plans to open a LaRosa's Pizza franchise in Avery Square this year.
The Cincinnati native owns the management group that signed a franchise deal to bring the pizza and Italian food restaurant to Dublin later this year, a news release from LaRosa said.
The restaurant will have seating for 140 and a Buddy's Room for groups and parties, the release said.
The new pizza restaurant will have also have pick-up and delivery options.
No opening date for the Dublin LaRosa location has been announced yet.
The Cincinnati pizza chain has been around for more than 55 years and has 64 locations in Ohio and Kentucky.
