Squisito Pizza & Pasta Opens in Queenstown, MD with Franchisee

Now Open! Squisito Pizza & Pasta Queenstown Premium Outlets

Nationwide — September 18, 2018 — Squisito Pizza & Pasta is now open for business in the Queenstown Premium Outlets in Queenstown, Maryland. This location is the first Squisito owned by franchisee, Martin Hernandez. Hernandez has been working with Squisito for the better part of 2 decades and it was his dream to bring Squisito back to the Eastern shore.

Squisito is a fast-casual Italian concept, with multiple locations across Maryland and Virginia. This restaurant is the 4th Squisito Pizza & Pasta franchised location and is the 11th restaurant for the Monte Restaurant Group which also includes Meatballs, Etc. and Carpaccio Tuscan Kitchen. Squisito Pizza & Pasta will also be opening later this Fall in Oakton, VA with franchisee, Kevin Trump.

“Martin has been a part of the Squisito family for almost 2 decades. It’s wonderful to see him open Squisito Queenstown as a franchisee. We are ecstatic to be back on the Eastern Shore after many years away and know this location will be a wonderful addition to the community and outlets!” said Michele DiMeo, President of Squisito Franchise Enterprises.

Squisito Pizza & Pasta is a full-service dining experience in a fast-casual setting. The concept is a perfect addition to the Queenstown outlets with its famous delicious NY Style pizza, homemade authentic recipes, addictive garlic knots, premium coffee bar and a selection of authentic gelato. Squisito can be seen from Route 50 as it is part of the main entrance to the outlets.

“We are happy to bring Squisito back to the Eastern Shore with Squisito Queenstown. The Queenstown Premium Outlets is the perfect place for a neighborhood pizza & pasta restaurant! It’s exciting to also add the gelato and coffee bar to the outlets. We are looking forward to many successful years on the Eastern Shore.” said Martin Hernandez, franchisee and owner of Squisito Queenstown.
