In addition to having just been announced as one of the second stage acts on Ozzfest 2010, KATAKLYSM frontman has been keeping busy with another business venture: opening a pizzeria. States Iacono:

"Growing up in an Italian family, you always know someone that owns a pizza joint. My father was a head chef in New York, so I kind of grew up with it as well. I chose the path of music, but somehow the restaurant business has come to find me. I’ve decided to open a pizzeria with a very good friend of mine, Saverio Donancricchia. His family has been in the pizza business for over 20 years in Chicago with Albano’s Pizzeria in Cicero. They’ve ranked as a Top 10 Chowdown Joints on ‘Top 101 Places in America’ by The Travel Channel, so needless to say, opening the #2 location has been keeping us very busy!!! We like to welcome all metalheads to come by Albano’s Pizzeria #2 and try our world famous giant pizza puffs! Bring in your Chicago-area concert ticket for any national tour and receive a discount on your order. Looking forward to unleashing the new KATAKLSYM album plus all the killer tours coming up with both KATAKLYSM and EX DEO."
