The Seneca Falls Pizza Hut was shut down earlier this year by Seneca County officials, now the restaurant at the intersection of Route 414 and 5&20 is being knocked down. Demolition of the building began yesterday.
Back in January, Seneca County officials “condemned” the building after Code Enforcement received an anonymous complaint. They found that the primary heating system in the dining room was inoperable. As a result, the minimum temperature permitted by the New York State Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code could not be achieved in the dining room. The restaurant was closed for just over a week before it reopened again for short time before closing for good.
The Pizza Hut is owned by V&J Holdings of Rochester. According to their website they operate about 50 Pizza Huts in Upstate New York including restaurants in Canandaigua, Geneva, Auburn, Penn Yan, Newark, and Ithaca.
