Pizza Express Junior Grande shuts down after a successful six-year run

Local Pizza Icon Grande Jr. Express Bids Farewell After Six Successful Years in Business

After six years in business, Grande Jr. Pizza Express, a popular pizza place in Washington County, has announced its closure. The shop, located near the Meadows Casino, expressed their gratitude to all their supporters over the years. Earlier this year, Grande Jr. Pizza Express was ranked #1 in the 2024 Best Pizza in Pittsburgh contest hosted by 100.7 Star. The contest featured Detroit-style pizza provided by the shop.

Despite being named the Best Pizza in Pittsburgh earlier this year, the shop has decided to end its operations. Customers can still enjoy pizza until the final day on Saturday, with items gradually being removed from the menu as they run out. The shop expressed appreciation for all the support they have received from their loyal customers over the years.
