Though they hoped to open for business Monday, business partners behind a new local pizza restaurant say a delivery delay forced them to push that date back.
Brian Shoemaker said an Index article published Wednesday about Old School Pizza Co. sparked great interest in the community and said he regrets circumstances beyond his control led to the postponed opening.
“The tables and booths we are waiting on, Hurricane Sandy has set them back,” he explained.
Owners still plan to open as soon as possible, though Shoemaker said that date could now be two weeks away.
The restaurant features a pizza, salad and dessert buffet in addition to a full menu and also features an arcade. Old School Pizza Co. is located in the former Shotgun’s Barbecue building on N.E. 27th Avenue.
