STURBRIDGE — Fresh off two months of interior renovations, Village Pizza is now capable of entertaining a village.

Since 1983, Village Pizza has been a fixture in Sturbridge, and the restaurant has been located inside its 487 Main St. building for the past 11 years. In order to keep up with a growing town population and provide a better restaurant atmosphere, co-owners Ted Gidopolous and his father, Bob, decided to make some needed improvements to the building.

The work began in early January, which included the installation of new furniture, floors, televisions, tables, and a fully operational bar. Village Pizza's dining area has been revamped as well, and the Gidopoulous' even applied for a license to serve alcoholic beverages not covered by its previous beer and wine license.

"There is still a little bit of work to be done, but for the most part the renovations are complete," said Ted Gidopoulous.

In total, the renovation project cost roughly $100,000, but the Gidopoulous' and their frequent customers believe the investment will attract more residents to Village Pizza.
