Pizza joint to take shuttered Virginia-Highland ice cream shop’s place.
Quick-service franchise Marco’s Pizza has plans to heat up space formerly belonging to Ben and Jerry’s in Virginia-Highland.
The once ice cream shop of 15 years, at 798 North Highland Avenue, has sat frozen in time since November 2011. The landlord, Jeff Stein of Stein Investment Group, Wednesday filed plans with City of Atlanta to buildout suite B for a Marco’s Pizza.
Stein and his team have been busy renovating the property after purchasing the building in 2013.
Neighboring space, suite A, what was once a 7,325-square-foot theatre, has not been leased, according to marketing materials for the property.
Marco’s Pizza recently opened stores in Sandy Springs and North Druid Hills.
