Parker’s Pizzeria to remain open past Aug. 1

There’s good news for lovers of Parker’s Pizzeria. The closing date has been extended.

Parker’s Pizzeria co-owner Roger Parker confirmed the restaurant would remain open past Aug. 1, as a handful of prospective buyers consider making the Parkers a deal they can’t refuse.

“We were informed that we’ve got a couple of good possibilities for buyers,” Parker said, though he declined to name the specific individuals interested in buying the restaurant.

While it is great for the Parkers that there is serious interest in the restaurant and keeping it open, he said he was informed it would cost the new proprietors more money if the restaurant was closed down, as opposed to a change of hands with the restaurant’s permits while it remains open.

Parker’s Pizzeria has been up for sale for the last five years, but it wasn’t until word spread of their original closing date of Aug. 1 that fans of the classic pizzas and steak hoagies sprang into action to keep the famous Georgetown restaurant alive.

Parker didn’t go into great detail, but he did reveal that two of the potential buyers are serious, and that one has plans to keep the restaurant in the same style it currently is.

Parker estimated the new closing date could come at the end of August or September, though it all depends on what the potential buyers offer and when they can finally close.

Once it’s sold, Parker said he and his wife Robin are considering moving to the Appalachian Mountains of western North and South Carolina.

“We want to be closer to some national parks,” Parker said.

Parker’s Pizzeria will remain open past Aug. 1, with potential buyers looking at purchasing the restaurant.
