Gattitown, a pizza restaurant and children’s entertainment center, is coming to Killeen.

According to the Killeen Economic Development Corporation, the restaurant will be located in a new 20,000-square-foot development next to Regal Cinemas in the 2900 block of East Central Texas Expressway. The development is expected to cost $3 million to build.

Gatti’s Pizza could not be reached for comment Thursday on a possible opening date.

The Killeen EDC predicted the new facility would provide 50 jobs at an average salary of $17,600 per year.

The new business is expected to bring $913,739 in financial benefits to the city of Killeen over the next 10 years, according to an EDC presentation.

Gattitown is one of a handful of businesses the EDC has negotiated to come into the city of Killeen over the past few months. Others include an MGC Pure Chemicals America super-pure hydrogen peroxide manufacturing plant in the Killeen Business park and an Urban Air indoor trampoline park in the 2100 block of Jennifer Drive.

THUGNIFICENT KILLED ME

Yes, another pizza shack, that's just what KILLeen needs. Plus, more minimum wage, part-time jobs, always good for any economy. The youth in KILLeen will be encouraged to stay right here in KILLeen making $7.50 an hour for 25 hour s a week.

@Thug Don't worry, it will not get open, the local BLM will say the name is racist!

THUGNIFICENT KILLED ME

Service businesses aren't industries that pay higher wages. KILLeen is in a death spiral. Ironic, isn't it? The city that KILLS you is killing itself.
