Will Pizza King Stay the Same with New Owners?
Long time Longview landmark Pizza King has been slinging some of the best pies this side of Italy in the same spot on East Marshall Avenue since 1955. Not only that, but the same family that founded one of the best and most unique restaurants in East Texas still owns it. If you are a Pizza King lover, this next bit of news might scare you.
According to CBS19, the beloved pizza joint is currently being sold. Top Right Pizza LLC, headed by brothers Rob and Mark Springer applied and obtained a liquor license from the city in November of last year. In fact, the brothers are just waiting on an inspection from the city before they can continue the process of buying the (IMHO) the best pizza place in East Texas.
Once Pizza King passes the inspection, the brothers should be granted a certificate of occupancy. That's when we will find out if things will change, or the if the Springers will continue to run things the Pizza King way.
