SH-based HHG opens its first Spin! Pizza store

Signal Hill-based Hofman Hospitality Group (HHG), owners of Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que and Hof’s Hut restaurants, announced Tuesday the opening of their first Spin! Neapolitan Pizza in Orange on May 20. As the chain’s first franchisee, the restaurant represents HHG’s first foray into operating a fast-casual dining experience built around a successful Midwest concept that has won multiple industry and “best of” awards.
Spin! was founded in 2005 by restaurant industry veterans Gail and Richard Lozoff and Edwin Brownell. The Lozoffs developed Bagel & Bagel, which later became Einstein Bros. Bagels. The couple had visited pizzerias across Italy and wanted to create a warm and fun modern dining experience built around the earthy flavors of Italy with a fresh and healthy emphasis. They partnered with James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Smith to create a broadly appealing menu that features authentic Neapolitan pizza with a modern culinary twist. The award-winning concept has six locations in Kansas and Missouri.
Family-owned HHG owns 17 Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que locations in California, Arizona and Nevada, and five Hof’s Hut restaurants in Southern California. In 2012, HHG completed a franchise agreement to open 37 Spin! restaurants throughout Southern California. HHG plans to open a second Spin! in early 2014 in Los Alamitos.
