CEDARBURG ó Itís been 12 years since Sal Elmanzo opened
his third Salís Pizza location in Cedarburg and seven
years since he returned to the restaurant after selling
it to a former employee in 2007.
now, after selling it in 2014, heís back again.
Former owner Chris Leonard closed the Cedarburg location
of Salís Pizza in October 2017, placing a sign on the
door saying that the pizza restaurant was closed due to
a death in the family. However, former employees
reported that payroll was not made that month and in
late November, an eviction action was filed against
Leonard to vacate the property at W63 N635 Washington
Ave. in downtown Cedarburg.
Salís Pizzaís Milwaukee East Side location has since
posted on its Facebook page Sunday that Elmanzo was
returning to reopen the Cedarburg location in the near
future, noting, ďI will be open, making you the best
pies and garlic knots in town again soon.Ē
Facebook site also notes that Salís is actively seeking
new employees for the Cedarburg location. For more
information, call 414-967-8040 or check out ďSalís Pizza
East SideĒ on Facebook.
