JONESBORO, Ark. – After a three year run, Jonesboro is losing one of its pizza places – at least, for now.
Sunday night was the last night in business for Jonesboro’s U.S. Pizza Company, a representative from their Facebook page confirmed to a reporter.
“Due to cost increases of food and labor, yes tonight is Jonesboro’s last night,” U.S. Pizza Company’s rep said Sunday. “[The] Batesville location will remain open.”
Known for their thin crust pizza and old-fashioned stone hearth ovens, U.S. Pizza joined the Highlands Shopping Center in 2017. It was announced on January 3, 2017. Haag Brown Commercial worked with G & P Development on rebranding the shopping center to include a variety of new or refreshed businesses, including Fuji Japanese Steakhouse, TJ’s Burgers, and more.
U.S. Pizza in Jonesboro occupied 6,000 square feet on the end-cap facing Highland Drive. It was the previous location of Fuji, which transitioned to a spot behind the pizza parlor.
Expenses outpaced the earnings of the business, the owner told Region 8 News as reasoning behind the closure.
A source close to the business hinted that it could reopen in the future.
