Grande Jr. Pizza Express, a popular Washington County pizzeria that has been in business for six years, is closing its doors. The store, located along Racetrack Road near the Meadows Casino, announced that their time had come to an end after what they called an “incredible six years”. They will keep the pizza in stock as long as they can before the last day on Saturday, but as they run out of items this week, those items will be gone from the menu.

The shop also thanked all its supporters for six years of business. Earlier this year, Grande Jr. Pizza Express was ranked #1 in the 2024 Best Pizza in Pittsburgh contest hosted by 100.7 Star and judged by a list of local panelists. The pizza provided during the contest was a Detroit style pizza.
