HURON, OH – Romeo’s Pizza hosted a Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to celebrate the newly opened location in Huron, Ohio on July 7th. The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held at the store located at 414 Cleveland Rd E, Huron, OH at 11am on July 7, 2021. The ribbon cutting was hosted in combination with the store’s Grand Opening Event that offered family fun at the store with the goal of donating a percentage of proceeds to a local charity.
Many members of the Huron Chamber of Commerce were in attendance for the event, enjoying award-winning pizza and celebrating the opening of the new location.

At the conclusion of the event, Romeo’s Pizza Huron was able to donate $333 to the Prayers From Maria Foundation. Prayers From Maria is a local organization that is dedicated to funding global research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for deadly childhood brain tumors.
“Growing up my family and I always enjoyed the Lake Erie Shores and frequented cottages in Huron. I have very fond childhood memories of my time in Huron and I wanted to give those looking to make future memories another sweet memory in the way of Romeo’s Pizza.
As we were planning our grand opening celebration, we wanted to make sure we gave back to the community we were serving. We chose Prayers From Maria, because like St Jude, Prayers From Maria works to eradicate cancer in children. To me, there is no better cause.” states Ryan Pojman, franchise owner of Romeo’s Pizza Huron.
One of Romeo’s core values focuses on positively impacting the community and environment. The Local Pizza Champion initiative is their opportunity to give back to the community and make the world a better place one pizza at a time.
“A Local Pizza Champion is someone who makes a positive and measurable difference in the communities they serve. They strive to pay it forward in everything they do, whether it’s delivering a pizza to a new neighbor, donating a meal to families in need or supporting a local charitable organization.” states Mike Rao, Chief Strategy Officer for Romeo’s Pizza. “Without our loyal customers and the support of our community, we wouldn’t have the opportunity to give back the way we do. Thank you to the Huron community for giving us the opportunity to donate to Prayers from Maria in the name of Huron Local Pizza Champions.”
Romeo’s Pizza now has 50 locations in Ohio, Indiana, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas. “Our growth and success are based on product quality and customer service. We’re proud to create new jobs in the community and are excited to introduce Huron to our award-winning pizzas.” stated Ryan Rose, CEO of Romeo’s Pizza.
