The Pizza Plant in Williamsville’s Walker Center will close after business Sunday, ending a 20-year run.
“We couldn’t come to terms with the landlord on a lease,” Pizza Plant owner Bob Syracuse said of the Main Street restaurant.
What will happen to all the beer? “Ideally, we’re going to run out,” Syracuse said. There might also be a customer appreciation night on Sunday night, coinciding with the restaurant’s last day of business.
That will leave Pizza Plant’s Transit Road location the only store of the pizza and beer specialist open – for now.
Plans for a 4,000 square foot Pizza Plant restaurant downtown at One Canalside, across the street from HarborCenter, are progressing, Syracuse said.
“We signed the lease, but I’m still waiting for the approval on financing,” said Syracuse. “We’re 99.9 percent sure on the financing, but I’d like to be conservative in that area in case something happens and I have to go to plan two.”
Architectural drawings are done, as well as mechanical, plumbing and electrical plans, Syracuse said. The kitchen design is under way, and the signage has to be worked out, Syracuse said. “There’s a plethora of things to do.”
