Owner hopes new Italian restaurant will be first in a franchise

The owner of a new Italian restaurant hopes her venture will be the start of a franchise.

Mozza, at 410 W. Bakerview Road, opened in late March with a menu that includes pizza, pasta, calzones, chicken wings, breakfast pizza and quesadillas. The restaurant also serves alcohol, including beer from local breweries.

Samantha Macconnell, CEO of Mozza, said she hopes to create a franchise. Next, she plans to take the restaurant south to Burlington and then eventually to Seattle, but she doesn’t have a timeline in mind for the business’ growth, she said.

The restaurant’s grand opening and ribbon cutting celebration is on April 28 between 10 and 11 a.m.

Currently, the restaurant is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. everyday but Sunday. For more information, see Mozza’s Facebook page.
