ST. LOUIS — A pizza chain that caught the attention of former President Barack Obama has shuttered its last remaining location, with the business now up for sale.

Pi Pizzeria in the Central West End was slated to close after service Sunday, and the business, including recipes, furniture and fixtures, is for sale, owner Chris Sommers told St. Louis Magazine.

All locations of the pizza chain, which opened its first location in 2008 in the Delmar Loop, now are closed, including stores in the Mercantile Exchange building downtown, Kirkwood and Washington, D.C.

Pi Pizzeria’s shutdown was due to several reasons, most significantly the Covid-19 pandemic, Sommers told the publication. 

“The downtown locations were by far the most profitable, which changed post-(pandemic), when office workers did not return,” he said. “The Pi and Gringo downtown, along with the monster Pi in Washington, DC., are what kept us going for so long, and then that all ended.”
