CLEVELAND (WJW) — A pizza staple in Cleveland for over 60 years is getting a new flagship location and a Cleveland icon on its team.

MLB’s “Manager of the Year” Tito Francona is tossing his hat into the pizza-creating world at Geraci’s Slice Shop.

The pizza shop will be a fast-casual restaurant at the Colonial Arcade.

Francona says he is excited to invest in the pizza world. He will also create a pizza with proceeds going to the Cleveland Guardians’ charities and plans to be at the restaurant regularly. 

“I’m an Italian who loves pizza and loves Cleveland. Geraci’s is such a beloved brand it is just the right fit. Plus, it’s a short scooter’s ride from the ballpark”, says Francona.

You will be able to grab a “Tito pizza” before heading to a Guardians game or seeing your favorite show this Spring. 

Geraci’s Slice Shop will be open for lunch, dinner and late at night. They will also offer delivery and catering.
