Donatos Pizza announced the opening of a second Donatos Pizza location at John Glenn International Airport on Tuesday, May 8 at 6 a.m. Touchstone Hospitality IV, LLC, led by operating partner, Robert E. Lee III, and Curtis Jewell, look forward to bringing Donatos premium pizza, salads, wings and subs to passengers and airport employees in Concourse C.
“We were privileged to open the nation’s first Donatos airport location a little over four years ago inside the Southwest Airlines terminal at John Glenn International,” said Lee III, who has spent more than 30 years in the hospitality industry including the past four-plus years as a Donatos’ franchise partner. “Recognizing that indeed every piece is important, we are grateful to the Columbus Regional Airport Authority for allowing us to grow our presence and we appreciate HMSHost for their partnership and including us in the new Concourse C food and beverage program. We look forward to providing travelers with Columbus’ hometown favorite for breakfast, lunch and dinner along with a full-service bar featuring local craft beers.”
The new location, which complements the existing location in Concourse A, features a contemporary dine-in experience with 39 seats to serve passengers flying on Delta, Frontier, OneJet and Vacation Express. The 1,800-square-foot store will feature a full-service menu and bar that includes 12 beer taps with both domestic and local craft beers, wine and cocktails. This location will serve made-to-order breakfast, lunch and dinner, and will also feature a Grab-n-Go counter with fresh pizzas and sandwiches ready for the traveler rushing to catch a flight.
“We’re thrilled to open a second location at John Glenn International Airport,” said Donatos CEO Tom Krouse. “Our franchise partners from Touchstone Hospitality IV, LLC have been tremendously successful with their first store, and this new location allows even more passengers to enjoy Columbus’ hometown favorite as they travel to other places.”
The menu features Donatos’ famous Edge-to-Edge® pizza, with toppings loaded from one edge to the other, all atop a layer of aged provolone cheese. Each large pepperoni pizza boasts 100 pieces of pepperoni, and customers can mix and match from a variety of 25 toppings including fresh vegetables that are hand-cut daily. Donatos Pizza Columbus Airport Concourse C will also serve fresh salads, oven-baked subs and boneless or traditional baked chicken wings that are available naked, sauced or dry-rubbed. In addition, they will feature breakfast pizzas and sandwiches along with Cup O Joe coffee.
