American Pie Pizza Co. planned for new Ocala mall

According to a news report from starbanner.com, “Construction of the open-air Market Square at Heath Brook mall is still on schedule for a spring opening.”

“We’re still looking at a soft opening at the end of February,” said Lorrie Keener, a spokeswoman for United American Realty, the project’s developer,” said the story. “The mall, located on the State Road 200 corridor west of Interstate 75, was originally scheduled to open next month. But United American Realty announced in May that the opening had been pushed back to February. Keener also announced an additional restaurant for the mall, American Pie Pizza Company. Based in Winter Garden, American Pie Pizza is a Central Florida chain. The company’s Web site lists 11 locations, most of them in the greater Orlando area. Additionally, one outlet is on the Atlantic Coast in Palm Bay, while another is in Pinellas Park on Florida’s Gulf Coast. As many as 30 more are planned, according to the Web site. The chain dates to 2002, with its first stores opening in Clermont and Winter Garden. American Pie serves New York-style thin crust pizza, flat breads and something called a “goop dog” – described as a “sloppy Joe hybrid” barbecue sandwich on a hot dog bun.”
