Adriatico’s Building Will Be Torn Down, But Owner Won’t Give Up That Easily

If you heard the news about Adriaticos this morning, try not to panic.

The Lantern reported that Adriatico’s building will be demolished in September 2018 to make way for a new optometrist and office space. Naturally, lovers of the best pizza on campus were heartbroken.



Owner Greg Fortney said that the pizza shop will live on, hopefully in a location nearby.

“We view ourselves as part of the fabric of the university,” Fortney told The Lantern. “We have every intention to continue being part of that fabric.”

Whew. We can all breathe a sigh of relief. For a second, I thought we were going to have to have the worlds largest pizza party in protest. Actually, a massive Adriatico’s pizza party sounds pretty fun.

Who doesn’t love pizza?
