Sizzle Pie quietly shuttered both of its North Brooklyn locations over the holiday. The popular chain released a statement, citing “travel costs, a challenging labor pool and extremely high staff turnover” for their unexpected closures. Despite an abundance of great pizza in Williamsburg (Joes, Vinnies, Best Pizza) Sizzle Pie will be missed.
“We had a great year in New York and it was a blast. But the immense travel costs, a challenging labor pool and extremely high staff turnover in New York all combined to make for an unsustainable long term business for us. We want to thank everyone who welcomed us with open arms and all of the New Yorkers who said our pizza is legit. We will truly miss you all. Come see us in Portland and the Pacific Northwest any time. Party on!
