Re: Papa Romanos move. Great question as to why they moved. I didn't see an answer. I know we do not order very often anymore since the move

Papa Romano's moved due to circumstances out of our control. The decision to move was not easy. However our new location ls wide open and larger than the prior location. Our customers appreciate that they can see everything we do. Watch the food come out of the oven. See us make a salad and have constant exposure to everything. The OCHD loves our location. It is clean and spacious. We like NOT hiding behind a wall.
