In 2022, Louisville will get its first LaRosa’s Pizzeria –– and it’ll be located next to a new First Watch location.
The Cincinnati-area development group One Holland has announced that it will turn the O’Charley’s at 10641 Fischer Park Drive into a LaRosa’s and First Watch.
LaRosa’s is a Cincinnati chain that serves popular Italian dishes like pizza, pasta, and calzones.
First Watch is a “daytime dining” cafe that serves breakfast and lunch dishes like omelets, pancakes, sandwiches, and quinoa bowls.
First Watch is projected to open first in the late summer of 2022, followed by LaRosa’s in the fall.
Currently, there are five First Watch locations in Louisville and Southern Indiana, but most of LaRosa’s 66 locations are in the Cincinnati area.
In a press release, One Holland CEO Gary Holland said, “Central Kentucky has rallied around our LaRosa’s pizzerias, and we’ve continued to hear from LaRosa’s fans in Louisville how much they wanted their own LaRosa’s.”
“First Watch is a family favorite wherever we go. We truly want to get to know our neighbors in Louisville and become a part of their traditions.”
The new location is looking to pre-hire about 100 employees total, including line cooks, delivery drivers, and servers. You can apply for a position at this link.
