Critically acclaimed Brooklyn pizza chain Paulie Gee's is finally making good on its promised Ohio expansion. The pizza 38 member is set to debut its first Buckeye State location in the Columbus neighborhood of Short North on January 20according to Columbus Alive.

Paulie Gee's founder Paulie Giannone has teamed up with Ohio franchisee Terry Gibbs to bring the restaurant's Neapolitan-style pies to the 2,400-square-foot space. The new location will employ a wood-burning Stefano Ferrara oven, a bar with local beers and wine, and a menu combining Paulie Gee's standard bearers and new creations by Gibbs.

Giannone first announced the multi-city Paulie Gee's expansion more than two years ago, with plans to open restaurants in Chicago, Oakland, Portland, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Columbus, and Long Island. The company recently snagged a space in Chicago's Logan Square. The Short North outpost won't be the last in Ohio, either. The New York Business Journal confirmed in December that Paulie Gee's is headed to Cincinnati this summer.
