Geno’s Pizza, Kosmos Greekafe leaving Dickson Street

Geno’s Pizza will be moving to 2920 Martin Luther King Boulevard this summer and closing their Dickson Street location.

Back in March, we learned that Kosmos Greekafe would be opening a new location on College Avenue, in the former Arby’s building at 2136 N. College Avenue.

Signs at the new location

At the time, restaurant owner Michael Theodore told us he hadn’t decided whether the new restaurant would be a second location, or if he would be moving his business altogether. That question appears to have been answered, according to a sign posted next to the cash register at the restaurant.

“We’re moving July 2011,” reads the sign, which also touts ample parking at the new location, more dining space, and an expanded menu.

Just a few doors down from Kosmos on Dickson Street, Geno’s Pizza By The Slice also announced its intentions to move via a sign posted at the restaurant.

“Last Day June 12th,” is printed in red letters on one side of the door. “New location on 6th/MLK.”

Signs for Geno’s Pizza have been in place on the sides of the new building at 2920 W Martin Luther King Blvd. for a few months, and we noticed workers presumably remodeling the building over Memorial Day weekend.

An update posted on the restaurant’s Facebook page also touted free parking as one of the benefits of the new location.

From the restaurant’s Facebook page:

Genos is moving to a new location in Fayetteville. We will close the Dickson Street store on June 12th. The new store should be up and running soon after. Our new location is on Martin Luther King Blvd, directly across the street from Wal Mart and right next door to Walgreens. We will have sit down dining, drive thru and FREE parking.
