Same Joint, New Location

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

The pizza place in my area has moved from a Main Street location to a side street with no parking. I went last night wondering why mess with a good thing for a bigger location? The new location was formerly a kitschy kind of place with an expensive menu and not much service and they failed.

The appearance on the outside has changed to be close to what it was in the old location. The inside is also similar but a lot bigger but poorly organized and the acoustics were lousy. The service was slow and only two waitresses worked the whole place with a couple of kids bussing. The food is terrific and in my view they still make the best pies around. It will be interesting to see how this place goes. If I ruled the world, I would have kept the old location even as a largely take out place, but I don't so I hope Baba Louies stays around.

Thanks for sharing your experience. You may need to take a longer walk to enjoy the pizzas.

Happy Memorial Day Sheila,  some time moving to a new location can back fire on the owner.

I have mortal disdain for restaurants that have bad accoustics.  Especially, those that seem to amplify the noise in the room.  I suspect it is done to make the places seem more busy than they actually are.

There must have been a good reason to change the location for this pizza place. Seems that they may need more help.  Have a safe one!

Some of the best restaurants in our area are holes-in-the-wall establishments that serve the most amazing food. I do hate when they change their location though - you just get into a routine!

I miss New Jersey pizza! My favorite place is Romeo's on Main Ave in Passaic.  I hope Baba Louie's makes it in their new location.

Change is not always bad and at time change can be bad... there was a Restaurant on the second floor with virtually no parking and they moved to a massive large place with super large parking lot.... we thought it was ambitious and amazingly enough they filled out the Restaurant and filled the parking lot too:)Endre

I hope they can survive the change and the customer disappointment in the new location. You can't be the only one who noticed.
