In response to the Covid-19 pandemic and the statewide and national calls for limited interaction, Evel Pie Creator and Co-owner Branden Powers has made the decision to temporarily halt operations at the pizzeria, effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
From 11 a.m. today, in the spirit of giving back to the community, the pizzeria will give away free pizzas until their stock is depleted. Patrons will not be allowed to congregate during this process.
“This was a very difficult decision because of our employees, but we need to do the responsible thing,” said Powers. “We hope to be back serving the community as soon as we can.”
