On Monday, April 24th, the much anticipated Gino’s East Phoenix opened its doors to a swarm of eager customers. This is the first Arizona location for the iconic Chicago pizzeria. Sitting at 3626 E Indian School Road, where the previous Hazelwood’s Sports Grill stood, the property began the redevelopment process in mid-2016.
The new building is roughly 4,400 square feet, with an expansive outdoor patio. It features a uniquely “Gino’s” vibe with exposed brick, reclaimed wood, nostalgic Chicago pictures, and, of course, designated walls that were meant to be signed.
“We’re thrilled and honored to be a part of this project,” says Joshua Simon. “I’m originally from Chicago so this particular redevelopment has me feeling a bit nostalgic. We’re proud to be playing a role in bringing the best of the Windy City to the Valley of the Sun!”
Gino’s East Phoenix is located along a portion of Indian School that has experienced significant development and redevelopment in the last couple of years. Projects have emerged along the heavily traveled corridor from major redevelopment at 32nd Street and Indian School, to new retail developments at both 40th Street and Indian School and 44th Street and Indian School.
