Acropolis Pizza Closing Bites Syracuse Students, Popeye’s Coming

It seems like chain restaurants with predictable food, including pizza joints, have taken over everywhere and are squeezing out the little guy, and that’s what’s worried Syracuse University students with the coming closing of Acropolis Pizza House after 40 years.

It’s been a fave spot to grab a late-night bite but is in its waning days. It has been, said the student newspaper The Daily Orange, more than just a food spot but a hangout.

A Popeyes franchise is planning to take its place and some students aren’t happy about it, Acropolis unable to hold on during the COVID-19 pandemic, even as the coronavirus has begun to wane.

“Regardless of what could have caused the pizza joint to call it quits, students deserve better than another chain restaurant,” the paper said.

It added, “it is a shame that one of SU’s popular eateries is getting swapped out for a chain that has more than 2,500 national locations and no ties to the Syracuse area.”

“These larger franchises will garner business, but they subtract from campus culture, which should be a priority in a college town,” the paper said. Too bad.
