When locals opened the first SPIN! at 6541 W. 119th St. in Overland Park in 2005, it was one of the nation’s first Neapolitan-style pizza restaurants. Lots of time and effort had gone into working with James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Smith, who also was named 2014 national Chef Innovator of the Year, to develop SPIN!’s unique hand-tossed, stone-fired pizza.

Through the years, they kept working together to bring new dishes and new toppings to the menu. Rustic whole wheat and gluten-free crusts, Paninis, signature Italian deli sandwiches, and new dips served with Rosemary flatbread were added. Recently, SPIN! began offering shrimp on its pizza and three hot dishes – Calabrian Shrimp Formaggi, a Mondo Stuffed Meatball, and Roasted Eggplant Parmigiana — that can be enjoyed as an appetizer or as a meal with a choice of soup or salad.

Already known for its affordable bottled wines priced well below traditional restaurant prices, SPIN! added homemade sangrias, craft beers, barrel wines at some locations, and new sizes of pours.

SPIN! also added new locations on both sides of the state line. Five are in Kansas at 6541 W. 119th St. in Overland Park, 8224 Mission Road in Prairie Village, 9474 Renner Blvd. in Lenexa, 14230 W. 119th St. in Olathe, and 6510 W. 135th St. in Overland Park, and three in Missouri at 4950 Main in Kansas City, downtown in Crown Center, and at 1808 N.W. Chipman Rd. in Lee’s Summit.

Two more SPIN!s are on their way in the Northland and on the University of Central Missouri campus in Warrensburg, which will bring SPIN! to 10 area locations in its 10th year.
