W. Roxbury Upper Crust will close

After four years in business, the independently owned Upper Crust pizza restaurant in West Roxbury plans to close Sunday.

“We’ve loved being here,” said Kelley Santangelo, manager and co-owner. “The community has been very supporting. It’s bittersweet for us and sad, but it’s a lot of work and takes up a lot of our time.”

Santangelo said the owners want to spend more time with their families. She said another restaurant will take over the 1727 Centre St. space.

The Globe reported this month that the West Roxbury pizzeria was the last remaining franchisee of the Upper Crust chain, which has closed numerous locations and in October filed for bankruptcy protection after mounting financial problems, labor troubles, and disputes between its partners. Some of chain’s locations have reopened.

The closing was announced on the restaurant’s Facebook page on Thursday.
