Carmel,Indiana (PR MediaRelease) June 24, 2019

In July of 2019, a calzone and salad shop will be opening its first of five locations in the Indianapolis area. Sauce on the Side, a St. Louis based restaurant chain, has been serving communities for over six years. Indy area investors, Michael Hammond and Kels Watson, are excited to begin their journey and serve Indianapolis the freshest of calzones and salads known to the Midwest.

“I first learned about Sauce on the Side back in 2015. Immediately, I fell in love. The concept is easy to understand and the food is to die for. Best calzones in the world, if you ask my family. If you want great service and a 5 star experience, you know where to go.” – M. Hammond

The first location will be opening in the suburb Carmel, just 14 miles North of Mile Square in Downtown Indianapolis. The Carmel location will reside in the lot of Meijer grocery store, just off of North Meridian Street. Hammond and Kels are on schedule to open the doors the first week of July. More locations will follow in the next two years with Downtown Indianapolis being the second to fill in the bottom of a new Hyatt complex. Construction is expected to finish in the fall of 2019 – across from Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Sauce on the Side first opened in 2012 in Downtown, St. Louis. Founders Ryan Mangialardo, Brendon Maciariello, and Dan Porzel collaborated to fulfill a goal – feed the community.

We think there’s something special about fresh food. That’s why we make everything from scratch here at Sauce on the Side. From our handmade calzones to salad dressings and desserts – it’s all made right here.” – R. Mangialardo

About Sauce on the Side: As a fast-casual restaurant that has served more than 1 million calzones, they have a mission: “To feed the community. To provide the highest quality food and service. To create an atmosphere of fun and fairness, for customers and employees.” For additional information, please visit or any of their social media sites.
