We’ve all heard how difficult it can be to get building permits in Lee County. Apparently the new Two Meatballs in the Kitchen Brick Oven Pizza restaurant that was supposed to open this summer ran in to some of those difficulties.
However, we can now report that the restaurant is in permitting and owner Sal Basile told the Gateway Sun that ground breaking will be “within a month”. The plan is to open the restaurant next April or May.
Basile says he has no interest in rushing the construction to be open before spring training and the busy season, because it’s the most difficult time of year to recruit and train a quality staff.
The Two Meatballs in Gateway will be located next to the FBI building, and according to county records its address will be 12401 Commerce Lakes Drive.
Once open, the restaurant will employ at least 25 people.
