US Pizza Co. location in Newport to close

A longtime Jackson County restaurant will be closing its doors later this month.

According to a Facebook post from a family member, Stephanie Bolin, the US Pizza Co. restaurant on Highway 367 will be closing on July 19.

"After 37 wonderful years, my great aunt and uncle are shutting the doors to one of the best pizza places in this area," Bolin wrote. "July 19 is the last day, so go while you can."

Bolin said in the post that some of her best memories were there at the restaurant "with my aunt and uncle fixing pizza as a child."

A person who answered the phone at the Newport restaurant confirmed the news to Region 8 News Saturday, saying the owners are retiring.
