News Elsewhere: Sally's Apizza in New Haven May Be Sold
A landmark pizza spot in Connecticut that has been in business for more than 75 years may be up for sale.
According to an article in the Hartford Courant, negotiations are currently taking place that may result in the sale of Sally's Apizza in New Haven, a well-known pizzeria that is just up Wooster Street from another iconic pizza parlor (Pepe's). An earlier article from the New Haven Register mentions that the pizza spot is indeed up for sale, with owner Bob Consiglio stating that they have had "multiple" offers on the place, though he also says that "Sally's is not going anywhere..." It looks like more details should be coming out on the possible sale over the next few weeks, according to both articles.
Sally's Apizza first opened in 1938, serving pizza cooked in a coal-fire oven to such well-known people as Bill Clinton, Jimmy Durante, Frank Sinatra, and Kathleen Turner, according to the Courant. Both Sally's and Pepe's are considered by many to be among the best pizza places in all of New England, with countless arguments taking place as to which of the two spots is better.
The address for this iconic pizza parlor in New Haven is: Sally's Apizza, 237 Wooster Street, New Haven, CT, 06511. Its website can be found at http://sallysapizza.com/
