Trustees Monday upped the number of allowed Class A-3 liquor licenses to accommodate the addition of Gelsosomo's (pronounced Jel-sah-so-mos) Pizza, to be located at 206 Main St.
The sit-down restaurant will be the tenth location for the 35-year-old company founded by Tom Gelsosomo. The Lemont spot will be 1950s-themed and family friendly, with alcohol offered for of-age patrons.
Gelsosomo opened his first restaurant in Portage, Ind. in 1979. Eight of the current locations are in Indiana; the ninth is in Michigan.
The founder prides himself on natural ingredients, high quality control and the "Best Tasting Pizza in Northwest Indiana."
He's also known to back youth sports such as little league, football, basketball. Gelsosomo's also sponsors organization events such as church, union, and donations to local non-profit organizations.
Lemont Mayor Brian Reaves said they're working with the owners to move along the opening as quickly as possible.
