Pizza chains have closed restaurants in both Uptown, Minneapolis, and St. Cloud this week.
A sign on the door of historic Twin Cities-based chain Red's Savoy, home of the 'Sota-Style pizza, revealed its closure after a decade at 24th and Hennepin Avenue in Uptown.
Considering its last post on Sunday was plugging pizzas ahead of the Vikings game, the closure is seemingly a sudden one.
Red's Savoy, which was founded in St. Paul in 1965, has spent much of the past year opening new locations rather than closing them, revealing last year it was planning to add eateries in downtown Minneapolis and Blaine to its 18 (now 17) locations.
BMTN has reached out to the company for comment.
In St. Cloud, the Colorado-based pizza chain Old Chicago has closed its store at 404 Second St. S.
The franchise-run restaurant has been in the city for 16 years, with the general manager Tanya Young telling the St. Cloud Times the decision was taken not to renew the lease.
Old Chicago Pizza has four remaining locations in Apple Valley, Duluth, Eden Prairie and Roseville.
