Red’s Pizzeria has taken a twisted turn on Davis Boulevard in East Naples.

After serving as a local pizzeria for nearly 50 years, Red’s space in Davis Plaza will reopen Monday, Oct. 4, as Twisted Cheesery, a new local eatery with variations of artisan grilled cheese sandwiches dominating its menu.

The contemporary grilled cheese concept shows that “a good sandwich is a work of art and the grilled cheese is our canvas,” according to Twisted Cheesery’s owners, Calvin Joiner and Mike Voorhis. The pair, who also teamed up last year to create Twisted Sheep Pizza and Brew, a local artisan pizza joint on the East Trail, is back with another twisted, over-the-top concept.

Before Red’s closed a few months ago, Mr. Joiner operated the pizzeria for 11 years. When he bought the pizzeria at age 22, he was at least its eighth owner. The pizzeria previously was Gino’s for about seven years and Roma Pizza for more than 30 years before that, starting in 1972.
