15th location in Kentucky to feature the brand’s award-winning Edge-to-Edge® pizza


HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. (May 5, 2020)—Donatos Pizza is pleased to announce the opening of Donatos Pizza Highland Heights on Tuesday, May 19. Space Cowboys Restaurant Group, LLC, led by managing partner, Bill Aseere and his wife, Sara, look forward to bringing Donatos premium pizza, salads, wings and subs to the community.

“Space Cowboys Restaurant Group, LLC is excited to bring Donatos Pizza to Highland Heights,” said Aseere, of the franchise partner group that also owns and operates Donatos Pizza Independence. “Our ownership group are all alumni of Northern Kentucky University and have roots in the Campbell County community. We plan to be active in the community and work alongside NKU as much as possible.”

The new location will offer online ordering at donatos.com for order-ahead pickup and delivery options. iPhone and Android users will also find the Donatos app extremely easy to order their favorite menu item. Donatos Pizza Highland Heights’ 1,578-square-foot store is located at 2517 Wilson Road. This store will employ 40 full-time and part-time associates and will be open at 10:30 a.m. and stay open until 11 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and until midnight on Friday and Saturday.

One of the hallmarks of Donatos Pizza has also been giving back in the community where they serve. The Space Cowboys Restaurant Group, LLC, which also includes Michael Ash and Mark Halpin, will continue that tradition in conjunction with the Highland Heights store opening by giving back to frontline workers. From 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Monday, May 18, active duty medical and first responders (health care, fire and police) in the area can pick up a free large pepperoni or Serious Cheese pizza by showing a valid badge/ID. One pizza per customer and quantities are limited.

“This is just a small way for us to support the first responders in the area and to say THANK YOU for their courageous efforts during the pandemic,” said Aseere.

“We are excited to open this new location in Highland Heights,” said Donatos CEO Tom Krouse. “These franchise partners have done a tremendous job of both serving and giving back in the community with their first store in Independence, and we can’t wait for them to do more of the same in Highland Heights.”

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 Highland Heights will also serve fresh salads, oven-baked subs and boneless or traditional baked chicken wings that are available naked, sauced or dry-rubbed.
