Pizza Shuttle is officially relocating this week from the space it’s called home for nearly four decades.
The restaurant is planning to open its new location — 711 W. 23rd St., No. 19, less than a mile east of its original home — for delivery only on Tuesday, and for everything else on Wednesday.
The new spot is in the strip mall near 23rd and Louisiana streets that was recently home to Sarpino’s Pizzeria. The suite is tucked back near the southwest corner, next to the Malls Barber Shop and in the space that once belonged to Wheat State Pizza.
“We’re very excited for the move into our new home, but it is bittersweet as we say goodbye to our home since 1984,” the restaurant said in a Facebook announcement Saturday.
University Storage, which occupies the bulk of the building at 1601 W. 23rd St., Pizza Shuttle’s longtime home, is expanding to fill the entire lot. Another former tenant of the building, King Buffet, closed permanently last month, and the Salvation Army store will be moving further east on 23rd Street.
Though the location will be new, Pizza Shuttle will maintain the same phone number from its infamous jingle.
