The Elwell’s looked at different markets when deciding where to expand their business and through happenstance discovered the abandoned building on National Avenue.

They just happened to pull off Hwy. 69 at the strip mall site, she said, saw the for sale sign and a drive-through window and went directly to the real estate agent next door to the property to inquire.

“It’s been eerie how it worked out,” Emily Elwell said. “We are supposed to be in Fort Scott.”

They currently have 17 employees, all local.

Hours for the pizza eatery are 10:30 a.m. to midnight, Sunday through Thursday; 10:30 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
