Paper covers the windows of the restaurant at 2111 Packard St., and the shopping center’s listing broker is now marketing the 1,700-square-foot space for lease.
“I have listed the space and we’re going to try and find another pizza business,” said Swisher Commercial’s Bart Wise. “The equipment and infrastructure is there.”
Brent Anderson opened Ann Arbor Pizza & Subs in May 2011, shortly after Marco’s Pizza closed. Although Marco’s struggled in that location, Anderson said there was potential in the shopping center for a non-corporate pizzeria.
Ann Arbor Pizza & Subs offered salads, submarine sandwiches and pizzas, including its specialty sourdough crust pizza. Anderson could not be reached to comment about the closure.
Wise said he believes a pizza restaurant can survive in the shopping center on Packard Street, but both Marco’s and Ann Arbor Pizza & Subs likely were affected by the economy.
He said the newly-vacated space is the only vacancy in the shopping center. BGreen replaced the former Hollywood Video space in 2010.
