Looking for a new place to grab a slice that is much closer to home? Search no further, as Greek’s Pizzeria is coming to town!

Since the closure of TOPPIT in June, it seems Upland has been lacking in areas to fulfill the pizza craving. Greek’s Pizzeria originally got started in 1969 by Athanasios Chris Karamesines. The first store was opened in Valparaiso, Indiana, when Karamesines was 17, according to Greek’s Pizzeria website. Now, Greek’s has 20 locations across Indiana, including one in Muncie, Indiana near Ball State.

According to Muncie location manager Marko Pekovic, employees from that location are only foreseen working as supplemental help during opening weekend for the Upland store. A general manager and driver from the Muncie location will take on the full task of staying and assisting in the Upland location’s opening. The general manager will take on the tasks of training servers, cooks and drivers.

Sophomore Sydney Peugh is looking to get a job at the new establishment.

“I have experience in food business and feel it’s a great way to get outside the ‘Taylor bubble’ and earn some extra money for school,” Peugh said.

Greek’s Pizzeria is located at 62 E. Berry St. next to Joe on the Go in the strip mall near Ivanhoe’s. According to an article published by the Marion (Indiana) Chronicle-Tribune, the location will not open until early December.
