Donatos Pizza has now opened three locations in Sarasota in 16 weeks.

The Ohio-based pizza chain opened this week at 1145 S. Tamiami Trail. Donatos also has Sarasota locations at Clark and Swift roads and another at 5410 Fruitville Road.

The locations are owned by Legazza LLC, run by Tyler Williams and Joe Maxstead.

“The Sarasota community has been incredibly supportive of both of our restaurants since we opened and we are excited to now be able to serve even more of the area,” Williams said.

The restaurant specializes in “edge-to-edge” pies with toppings from corner to corner. Donatos also sells salads, subs, calzones and more.

“I am really proud of all of our associates and thankful for the support of the entire Donatos family as we’ve been able to do something really special during a time when so many restaurant brands and other businesses have struggled,” Williams said.

Donatos Pizza is a family-owned company with more than 150 locations in nine states.

Donatos Pizza is open Sunday-Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., and Friday-Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to midnight.
