Ian’s Pizza, 2035 E. North Ave., will close on Sunday, Aug. 9 and expand to include the space next door, 2031 E. North Ave. 

According to a Facebook post, the larger area will allow for an expanded customer seating area and updated back-of-house operations with a new, faster "Rotoflex" oven.

Also, Ian's will feature an expanded menu with brunch slices available on select days of the week and a fountain soda system featuring Sprecher sodas, among others.

"A selection of wine and local craft beers will round out our beverage update although we are still in negotiations with the neighborhood association to come up with a plan all parties can be on board for," reads the Facebook post.

During the renovation, the Ian's at 146 E. Juneau Ave. will remain open.
