Aladdin’s Eatery, 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza will open restaurants in Strongsville

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio – Two more national restaurant chains plan to open in Strongsville next year.

1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza, which has 18 restaurants in nine states, will move into an empty space in The Plaza at SouthPark, a retail center on Ohio 82 across from SouthPark Mall.

Also, Aladdin’s Eatery, a Lebanese-American restaurant chain with about 30 locations in four states, will open in Pearl South Plaza Shopping Center on the west side of Pearl Road, just south of Lunn Road.

The Strongsville Planning and Zoning Commission has approved plans for both restaurants.

1000 Degrees and Aladdin’s are part of a restaurant boom in Strongsville. Incoming restaurants have included Square 22 on Pearl just north of 82, Brew Garden at Howe Road and Southpark Drive andO’Charley’s at Pearl and Whitney Road.

Also, CoreLife Eatery, a health-food restaurant, opened earlier this year in Commons at SouthPark, just west of the mall; Tom + Chee, a grilled-cheese restaurant, opened in September near Square 22; and Hot Head Burritos opened in November, also near Square 22.

1000 Degrees, according to its website, has restaurants in South Dakota, Michigan, Virginia, Texas, California, Florida, Arizona, Connecticut and New Jersey. The chain plans to open locations in Maryland, Tennessee and Colorado, as well as Strongsville.

Customers in 1000 Degrees help prepare their own pizzas, and restaurant workers bake the pizzas in a revolving brick oven for about two minutes at 1,000 degrees. The extreme heat and fast cooking lock in the “true taste” of the ingredients, the website says.

Aladdin’s will move into a space formerly occupied by Strongsville Vacuum, which Painter said has moved into another building in Strongsville.

In Greater Cleveland, Aladdin’s has restaurants in Lakewood – where the chain started in 1994 – as well as Cleveland Heights, Independence, Middleburg Heights, Westlake, Mayfield, Bainbridge, Hudson and Mentor.
