Toppers Bows Out

A quick retreat from William Street

by Sally Mitani

posted 11/13/2013

News from the department of What Were They Thinking?--Toppers Pizza closed. One look at the empty storefront that set up shop nine months ago next door to NYPD on William is all you need to figure that one out. NYPD, a double storefront, hums with energy and always has about a dozen fragrant pizzas on view, for sale by the slice. Toppers is a Wisconsin-based company owned by Scott Gittrich, who was eager to get a foothold in Michigan. In a telephone interview last winter, Gittrich claimed that Toppers could triumph in this pizza-rich area by offering cheaper pizza and fast delivery, but this is expensive real estate to use as a pizza production factory.
