Pizza 51 owner Jason Pryor and his family held a small groundbreaking ceremony recently on the site of their new restaurant, Pizza 51 West, to be located in the vacated service station at the intersection of Mission Road and 59th Street.
Pryor was able to move forward with plans for the restaurant, which will offer the same pizza products as the original restaurant in Brookside, after the Fairway City Council approved a tax-incentive package in January.
Pryor said he received the building permit for the new restaurant on Monday and demolition started Tuesday. There will be construction activity on the site until the restaurants ready to open, probably in August, Pryor said. Pryor will be posting updates on the restaurant’s progress on their Facebook page.
