Cheney-based pizza chain to open North Side eatery

Rosa's will have smaller seating space; main focus will be takeout, delivery

  • Print Article

Rosa's Pizza has leased 1,300 square feet of floor space at 3422 N. Division, where it plans to open its third pizza restaurant in March, says owner Brad Barsness, who opened the flagship Rosa's Pizza restaurant in Cheney in 1990.

The restaurant tentatively is slated to open in March and will focus mostly on takeout and delivery orders, although it will have a small seating area, Barsness says.

The Division Street eatery will have up to a dozen employees, depending on the sales volume, he says.

Real estate agents Brian Anderson and Don Jamieson, both of the Spokane commercial brokerage NAI Black, handled the lease for the space on Division.

Barsness says the Rosa's Pizza makes its pizza dough and sauce daily using fresh ingredients.

The Cheney store is located in a building it shares with Cheney Lanes, which Barsness also owns, at 1706 Second. Barsness also owns the Rosa's Pizza restaurant at 1301 W. 14th in Airway Heights, which opened in 1995.
