Halftime Pizza in Boston's North Station Area Is Morphing into Halftime King of Pizza/J. Pace Express

[Ed note: This article was updated on September 17 to reflect new information given.]

A longtime pizza spot across from North Station in Boston appears to be joining forces with a familiar name. 

According to a source (Geoff Wong), a "coming soon" sign is now up for Halftime King of Pizza/J. Pace Express in the storefront on Causeway Street that has been home to Halftime Pizza. A page within the site seems to confirm this, showing that "Halftime King of a business registered with City of Boston, City Clerk," with the email given on the page being for J. Pace and Son, and an Instagram page for the place hints that this is a collaboration between the two businesses, saying that they are "Bringing The Hub on Causeway two celebrated brands J.Pace Express @ Halftime King of Pizza." (A recent tweet from Halftime Pizza confirms this, saying that "Everything is remaining the same! We just have a new look inside, along with J.Pace and Son to help compliment our Pizza.") Currently, locations of J. Pace and Son--which is known for its Italian food, subs, and provisions--can be found in the West End, the Seaport District, and Saugus.

Halftime Pizza has been around for approximately 40 years, offering pizza, pasta dishes, subs, salads, and more to commuters, sports/music fans attending events at TD Garden, nearby office workers, and locals.

The address for Halftime King of Pizza/J. Pace Express is 115 Causeway St, Boston, MA, 02114.
