Pizza Place rebuilding and expanding

Posted: Thursday, Jan 16th, 2014

Wind nor snow deters Brad Wagner and Parker Pfister from the clean-up necessary for the rebuilding and expansion of the Pizza Place.

On Wed.,Oct. 2, 2013, Lusk residents lost a community centerpiece when the Pizza Place, 218 South Main Street, experienced a devastating fire. The blaze cause extensive structural damage to Lusk’s only pizza restaurant and left the future of the business establishment shrouded in doubt.

Now Pizza Place owner Brad Wagner is preparing to reintroduce the popular pizza joint to the Lusk community. Wagner and his crew have been clearing debris and rubble from the location of the fire in preparation for an ambitious rebuilding effort. That rebuilding effort will include aggressive expansion. Wagner has purchased the True Hatter’s building with intentions of giving Lusk residents a bigger, better version of the Pizza Place.

“In all that we’ve been doing this, we’ve talked a lot about what we would have done differently if we had it to do over again,” Wagner told the Herald. “Well, now we’re doing it over again and we’re going to do it all right this time.”

According to Wagner, Lusk residents can expect a much larger dining area, with additional seating located in the place once occupied by the Coffee Shoppe. Like the Pizza Place, the Coffee Shoppe, 216 South Main Street, fell victim to the Oct. 2 fire. Wagner hopes to transform that tragedy into a something beneficial for Lusk’s pizza lovers by introducing a spacious spot that includes indoor and out door seating for feasting and celebrating. The business establishment’s roomier design, says Wagner, was the result of collaboration within the Wagner clan.

“My brother is an architect,” said Wagner. “He designed the new place.”

The new and improved Pizza Place will also be able to accommodate larger crowds of hungry customers with a larger, more elaborate kitchen. The new kitchen will have two ovens, one for preparation and the other for baking pizzas.
