Crust Pizza on South Broad Street is closing permanently.
Owners Paul and Michelle said, "It is with a heavy heart to share our decision to close Crust Pizza located on Broad Street permanently.
"We have had the privilege of serving the Chattanooga area since 2010 and have enjoyed meeting and becoming friends with many wonderful people.
We thought we had a few years left before retiring, but with all that has happened in the world and the economy we decided that trying to reopen after the pandemic and trying to make a realistic go of it would be incredibly difficult at this stage of our lives.
"We want to thank the many longtime customers, friends, neighbors and family for the years of trusting us to feed your families the food that you loved and returned for year after year.
"An EXTRA special thanks to our fabulous employees who stuck with us through thick and thin for so many years. We were blessed to have such dedicated people with us, and we cherish the wonderful relationships that we have formed over the years.
"Stay safe and be kind to one another."
