New Orleans City Business:
Reginelli’s Pizzeria is opening its first restaurant on the North Shore later this summer.
The casual pizza chain will be at 1810 North Causeway near the Northlake Shopping Center in Mandeville.
It will be the third venture in which the restaurant’s owners invite long-term employees to invest in the brand by owning a piece of the eatery.
Co-owner Darryl Reginelli said some have been with the restaurant for up to 20 years.
Several members of the leadership team have moved to the Mandeville area, prompting them to look for a North Shore location. The city “has long been requested by our guests as a potential new market, said Reginelli’s chief operating officer Lisa Milliet.
Nick Fremin, a 15-year veteran of the restaurant, will run the new location. Additional investors include Milliet, operations manager Adam Carry, general managers Sean Cherry and Nick Fremin and human resources manager Joanna Carry.
Reginelli’s has nine locations throughout the New Orleans area and Baton Rouge.
