Spot A Pizza Place closes in Palo Alto

Uploaded: Nov 10, 2017
Spot A Pizza Place has closed at 115 Hamilton Ave. in downtown Palo Alto.

A message from the owners posted in the pizzeria's windows apologizes for the "abrupt notice," stating that they were unable to stay open after too many employees left when they were notified about the future closure.

"After 14 years we have decided it is time for us to take a break and think about what we want to do next," the message reads. "It was a dream come true to be a small family business in this community and we want to thank every customer, employee, vendor and friend who have been a part of Spot Pizza over the years."

Owner Kelly Marik said he was still in negotiations for the space and declined to comment.

Marik, a former partner with Pizza Chicago, originally opened Spot at Town & Country Village in Palo Alto.

He opened a second Spot in Los Altos in 2006; that location remains open.

Oh bollocks, they had fantastic lunch specials. Old school vibe but with modern youthful staff, always friendly to customers (or at least to me). Guess I'll have to switch over to Domino's now.

Best wishes,

Andrew
