DuBois, PA – A friendly staple in the DuBois community, Frank’s Pizza on West Long Avenue, is closing down until further notice.
Frank’s was reportedly short staffed for the past 18 months.
We’re awaiting official announcements, but owner Jodi Shaffer made a Facebook post thanking the staff and saying that Frank’s is closed until further notice due to the staffing situation.
Frank’s Pizza has been a part of the DuBois community for 64 years, when it was started by Francis Kupetz in 1957. It changed hands multiple times since then, including when Shaffer’s parents, Dick and Linda, bought the business in 1987 and when it was transferred to Jodi Shaffer herself in 2001.
Many locals have loved Frank’s Pizza, and some who have moved away from DuBois say they always make a point to grab a slice of Frank’s when they come back to visit.
