Pi Pizza Food Truck to End Service July 31

The Pi truck was one of the first food trucks in the St. Louis area.

Pi Restaurants will discontinue regular operations for its food truck service in the St. Louiis area on Tuesday, July 31, according to the Pi Pizza web site

Pi has locations in the , , the Central West End, Chesterfield and a new location in the Merchantile Exchange in downtown St. Louis.

The statement on Pi's web site reads as follows:

July 31st, 2012 will be the last day of regular operations for both our St. Louis and Washington, DC trucks.

We are thrilled to have led the way in STL food truck scene, scouting out the most popular spots for trucks in St. Louis City. We’ve enjoyed bringing our Pi to guests who couldn’t otherwise enjoy Pi in our full-service restaurants during their lunch hour. But now we want to re-focus on the Pi experience in our brick-and-mortar operations. Especially with the recent heat this summer, we have realized there are too many factors in mobile operations that can compromise our guest experience and the comfort of our team members.

Our trucks have been incredibly successful as business development tools, allowing us to confirm a market for Pi in Downtown St. Louis, as well as building a loyal fan base in DC before we ever opened the doors of our Penn Quarter location. But we now have a dine-in restaurant on Washington Avenue in the Mercantile Exchange of Downtown St. Louis, and our DC restaurant is far exceeding our expectations. We plan to continue this method of brand-building in future markets, but it’s time to double-down on our success in these and our other full-service locations.

Our St. Louis truck will continue to support our growing catering and event business, as well as our non-profit contributions. We encourage guests to inquire about events and donations on our website, www.pi-pizza.com.

Thanks to everyone who has supported our truck operations the past 2 years! We are so fortunate to have such loyal guests both at our trucks and in our restaurants. We also greatly appreciate all the media and blogger attention given to both PiTruckSTL and PiTruckDC these past 2 years.
