Want to own a pizza joint? Poblano Pizza on the corner of 3rd and Snyder is up for sale for $299,900. While that may seem a little steep, Spectrum Realty lists entire building located at 2101 S. 3rd Street for sale and it includes the apartment above the restaurant.
As it stands, Poblano Pizza is still open for business. It’s unclear as to whether it will remain open if the building is sold. The former home of Avanno’s Pizza and some dicey copyright infringement Irish themed murals, new owners could look to break the pizza mold and bring something new to the neighborhood.
Interestingly enough, according to this handy pizza-themed infographic, Pennsport sits smack-dab in the middle when it comes to the price of pizza in various Philadelphia’s neighborhoods at five pizza joints averaging $10 a pie. Whitman, where Poblano Pizza actually sits, comes in at under 5 pizza places offering pies for $9 on average.
The apartment is listed as a two-bedroom with a kitchen, bathroom and washer/dryer. It also states that it “needs to [be] cleaned up,” which is evident from the blurry photos that accompany the listing.
