Portabella Pizza Coming Soon to Port?
Signs already mark the former Dairy Queen location near Port Washington's downtown, but city officials say no actual applications for business have been submitted.
Update April 2, 3:23 p.m.:
Portabella Pizzeria & Restaurant opened on April 1. Learn more here.
It's always nice to hear that an empty building is going to be filled with a new business, but this one has a bit of confusion surrounding it.
Signs already advertise "Opening Soon Portabella Pizza Restaurant," on the former Dairy Queen location on East Washington Street, but City Administrator Mark Grams said the business has submitted no occupancy permits or other applications for necessary business licenses.
Port Washington Main Street Executive Director Sara Grover, who often works with new businesses coming into town, said she has not been able to contact the owners, either.
Patch called a phone number listed on the new signs, but after numerous rings the phone was never answered nor did it go to voicemail. Grover said she's attempted this method of contact, also, to no avail.
Patch will update this story when more is learned about the possible addition of Portabella Pizza in Port Washington.
