After 58 years of serving slices and flipping dough, Vito’s Pizza and Beer is closing its doors.
Owners of the Spring Garden Township eatery cited challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic as the reason.
“We’ve endured the ever-changing regulations and occupancy restrictions and the continued targeted assault on our industry,” a Facebook post from Vito’s reads, adding that Gov. Tom Wolf recently vetoed a House bill that would have loosened restaurant restrictions.
Wolf vetoed House Bill 2513 on Oct. 16. It would have allowed restaurants to open at full capacity, The Associated Press reported.
The owners of Vito’s Pizza and Beer added that without a “proper” restaurant relief plan, the challenges associated with staying open were “insurmountable and impossible for us to overcome.”
“After 58 years it’s sadly time to say goodbye,” the Facebook post reads. “We are closing our doors and bringing this beautiful journey to an end.”
