It’s been a long year for the former-Pizza Hut in Seneca Falls, which closed seemingly for good earlier this summer.
The restaurant was demolished this week, clearing up speculation about the future of the now-defunct restaurant.
In January, FingerLakes1.com reported that Seneca Co. Code Enforcement closed down the location due to failure of a heating system. That was the system responsible for keeping the entire structure up to temperature during the winter months.
To legally operate in New York State, a primary heating system is required to keep all public businesses at an operating temperature. Without the system, the business was temporarily shut down.
The fate of the Pizza Hut location seemed to be sealed when they closed abruptly, leaving nothing more than a sign on the door. Weeks later the interior of the restaurant was gutted — leaving almost nothing behind.
The property is owned by BVS Properties, who noted that no future plans were clear with the former-Pizza Hut site.
