Former Monterey Inn site to become Peter Piper Pizza

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — There is new activity at the former location of Paul’s Monterey Inn.

The Albuquerque restaurant had operated out of the same space for over four decades, but closed its doors in February 2015. Peter Piper Pizza recently purchased the property at 1000 Juan Tabo NE, demolished the building and is planning to make the spot its fourth location in the Albuquerque area.

“We are very excited,” said Jason Greenwood, chief marketing officer. “We’ve had a lot of success in the market, and it hits our target demographic. We love Albuquerque.”

The new location, which will be the second in Albuquerque to have a drive-through,  is tentatively scheduled to open on Oct. 31.

The restaurant will be 8,000 square feet, which is small for a Peter Piper Pizza, but it will provide all of the services offered at its other locations, according to Greenwood.

Peter Piper Pizza is owned by CEC Entertainment Inc., which also owns Chuck E. Cheese’s.
