Pizza chain opens fourth Dayton-area location


Carmela’s Pizzeria has opened its fourth Dayton-area location in Brookville and is looking to expand in this region and elsewhere in the United States, the local pizza chain’s founder said Wednesday.

Carmela’s also operates pizza shops in Centerville, Springboro and New Carlisle. Its newest location is a 2,800-square-foot restaurant at 302 Market St. in Brookville — a city where founder Darren Dulsky founded the Carmela’s chain 10 years ago.

The newest Carmela’s opened on New Year’s Eve, Dulsky said. It seats 90, including 30 in a private party room, and offers a daily lunch buffet. The full-service restaurant serves beer and wine, and offers carryout and free delivery. Catering is also available. Plans call for adding a dinner buffet on peak nights in the coming months, Dulsky said. Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Renovations to the Brookville space — which previously housed a Pizza Express shop — took five months and cost about $50,000, Dulsky said.

The Carmela’s founder said he would like to add Dayton-area locations, starting perhaps with a restaurant in Greenville, after getting the Brookville location fully up and running.

The budding pizza chain, which specializes in New York-style pizza, last month rolled out details of a nationwide franchising program that will start with the hiring of a national franchising director in early 2014.

Dulsky has worked for the Friendly Ice Cream restaurant chain and served as senior vice president of operations for the Sbarro pizza chain. He opened the first Carmela’s in Brookville in 2004, but closed it five years later when he could not negotiate a lease extension.
