Anthony’s, which has about 60 company-owned locations on the East Coast, will be opening its first Midwest locations in Orland Park in July and Lombard in August. It plans to follow those up with restaurants in Vernon Hills and Kildeer.

Chief Operating Officer Chuck Locke said the company will focus its expansion on the suburbs, and he’s confident there’s a place for more pizza in the area. “We’re not here to sway people away from their deep dish,” he said. “There are a couple of coal-fired (pizza) places here that are doing very well.”

“We visited Florida in February 2013 and upon landing in Ft. Lauderdale, we stopped for lunch at Anthony’s Runway 84. During our 9 day stay, we had Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza and [went] back to dinner at Anthony’s Runway 84 just before departing from Ft. Lauderdale Airport. You are to be complimented because growing up Italian, we never ordered meatballs outside, but we tried yours for an appetizer and have had them several times.”
