PEORIA, Ill. — Sad news for Chicago-style pizza fans; it looks like Giordano’s is not coming to the River City after all.
Last December, the acclaimed pizza restaurant’s website listed Peoria on its new restaurants coming soon page. After months of no news, Peoria has since been taken off the list.
Peoria City Manager Patrick Urich on Friday said the company never actually contacted city leaders about expanding to the River City.
Those craving the Chicago-style pizza can still visit the Bloomington location on Veterans Parkway.
The restaurant first came to Chicago in 1974.
We have reached out to Giordano’s regarding the change.
