A local wood-fired pizza restaurant is set to close later this month.

The owners of Z’s Brick Oven Pizza plan to close the restaurant for good on Saturday, June 25, according to a recent post on the company’s Instagram page.

“From all of us at Z’s, thank you for making us a part of your family,” the owners wrote.

The post announcing the closure hinted at pandemic-related challenges as part of the reason for the closure, but mainly focused on gratitude to local suppliers, customers, and staff.

“The last few years have been a rollercoaster of experiences and challenges, many of which were unforeseen,” according to the post. “However rather than focus on the state of the industry at the moment, I would like to show my appreciation for the people who make this job worth it.”

The restaurant opened in 2013 at 2730 N. College Ave., in the building that had been home to a Tim’s Pizza location for years before that.
