Downtown Albany’s The Pizza Shop on West Broad Avenue has closed.
ALBANY, Ga. -- The Pizza Shop, a downtown Albany restaurant, recently closed its doors, with a yet undisclosed new restaurant poised to occupy the same location.
The Pizza Shop officially cut the ribbon on it's 232 West Broad Avenue location in January. The restaurant was operated by Fran Bragg and her brother, Jack Mannino, son and daughter of Vinny Mannino of the now defunct Mama Gina's Italian Restaurant on North Slappey Boulevard.
Bragg and Mannino have been unavailable for comment, with no further information concerning the closing. According to local realtor, Mary Carter, another restaurant is set to occupy the former Pizza Shop space on West Broad. Carter said she expects the owners of the new business release more information "very soon."
