Menlo Park: Mountain Mike's Pizza takes over former Applewood spaceUploaded: Feb 8, 2019
The space that was for decades home to Applewood Pizza in Menlo Park will soon serve pizza again.
A franchisee for Mountain Mike's Pizza is opening an outpost at the 1001 El Camino Real site, according to Samantha Wilson of Powerhouse Communications, which handles media for Mountain Mike's. This will be the third location for Janet Moscini and her son Brian, who own Mountain Mike's franchises in Campbell and San Carlos.

They're planning a "full remodel" of the 5,200-square-foot space, Wilson said. The restaurant will serve the same menu as other Mountain Mike's: specialty, create-your-own and gluten-free pizzas, plus sandwiches.
The Moscinis are aiming for a late summer opening, Wilson said.
Applewood closed in early 2019, much to the dismay of many longtime customers.
