For one popular, (dare I say, legendary?) pizza joint in the Cedar Valley, it's the end of an era, with hints of possible future plans.

Fans of Doughy Joey's Peetza Joynt were in shock to see their favorite restaurant being torn down. However, I guess we all should have saw this coming, since back in April, the Cedar Falls City Council approved the site plan for construction for a business to take over this site. Dupaco Community Credit Union will build a new building at the coveted highly visible location on the corner of Highway 58 and Viking Road.

In a message on the Doughy Joey's Facebook page, owner Chuck Landau mentioned their success in the last 10 years at the Cedar Falls' location , "but the time was right to let it go". Landau also wrote: "keep on the lookout for the future of Doughy Joey’s, as we are getting so close to its 're-establishment'." (keep scrolling for photos of the demolition)
