Press release submitted by River Music Experience.

The River Music Experience (RME) announces that Falbo Bros. Pizzeria will be replacing the existing cafe on the first floor of the Redstone building at 2nd & Main Streets in downtown Davenport.
The RME will continue to conduct its live music and educational programming on the RME Community Stage, sponsored by Lujack Lexus of the Quad-Cities, which is currently located in the space.
"We're very excited about this unique opportunity for collaboration with a successful national brand," said Tom Swanson, RME Executive Director. "Falbo Bros. will not only serve as a great amenity for the building and downtown, but having an independent operator in that space will enable the RME to focus even more on its musical and educational mission."
The Quad Cities Chamber's Executive Director of the Downtown Davenport Partnership, Kyle Carter, was heavily involved in the recruitment of the restaurant. "Falbo Bros. Pizzeria is a successful franchise with locations in Wisconsin, Iowa and Colorado," said Carter. "We thought the addition of a location in Davenport was a real winner for downtown and the whole community." Although best known for its pizza by the slice, Falbo Bros. also offers full-size pizzas and delivery. Its fresh, gourmet pizza blends characteristics from the classics of New York and Chicago, but has unique style all its own. The crust is rolled by hand using dough made fresh every few hours and the sauce is made from scratch as well.
"I can't wait to open the new operation," adds Barry Golinvaux, the franchise owner. "The location is an excellent fit and the culture of the RME will tie in nicely with the culture of Falbo Bros. We are very much looking forward to serving the Quad-Cities."
The RME Cafe's last day of operation will be Thursday. The space will be closed for three to four weeks for a remodel and build-out. Falbo Bros. Pizzeria plans to be open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday and 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.
