Pasquale's Pizza & Pub on March 16 will close at 7875 Ryan Parkway in Jerome Village, said A.J. Francisco, who runs that location.

Jerome Village is in Jerome Township near Dublin and Plain City.

The Pasquale's at 558 Schrock Road in Westerville will remain open, Francisco said.

Both locations have been owned and managed by Francisco's family – his parents, James and Sylvia, opened the Westerville restaurant in 1988, while the Jerome Village spot has been open for nearly four years, he said.

Francisco said the decision to shutter the Plain City location was made because he wanted to reduce the number of hours he was working to spend more time with his family.
