BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The owner of Vera Pizzeria has filed a lawsuit against PK Eats for breach of contract.
The lawsuit was filed in New York State Supreme Court in Erie County in March. The lawsuit claims that PK Eats breached the contract it held with Vera.
Vera announced on its Facebook page recently that it closed its location inside the PK Eats food hall effective immediately.
"We no longer feel this collaboration serves our business or meets the standards our customers have come to expect," the post said.
The business originally moved to North Buffalo from its longtime home on Lexington Avenue in the Elmwood Village in December.
A spokesperson for PK Eats said that "at this time all we can share is that there is much more to this story, and when the facts come out, it will be clear that PK Eats operated in good faith based on the contractual terms in place. While it is not our policy to comment on ongoing litigation, we remain confident in our decisions and conduct related to this matter.”
The food hall opened up on Hertel Avenue back in January. Vera was one of several restaurants that moved into the location.
Vera was only open for two months.
