LaRosa’s Inc. cited “consistently low sales” as the primary reason for the closure of its Beavercreek restaurant.
“It’s always our goal to successfully operate pizzerias long-term, however despite our tireless efforts, the Beavercreek pizzeria didn’t perform as well as we’d hoped. We genuinely appreciate the local team and our Dayton area guests who consistently supported us,” said Michael LaRosa, CEO, in a release issued Sunday afternoon.
