Panamanian pizza chain Athen’s Pizza will open in the former Midici space in Maitland | Food News | Orlando
When Midici in downtown Maitland closed its wood-fired ovens for good last year, it left a pie-sized hole in Maitland’s pizza supply.
But this winter, the pizza will be launched again when Athen’s Pizza, a Panama chain, moves into the 3,000 square foot space at 171 S. Orlando Ave.
Although the pizzeria’s use of apostrophes is suspect, its pizzas have been gratifying Panamanians since 1992. Although photos of their pizzas, at least those posted on their social media, may not impress true pizza lovers , they offer unique trim combinations.
In addition to pizzas, they will also serve gyros, wraps, salads and pastas.
Athen’s Pizza isn’t the only pizzeria set to open in Maitland this year. Lazy Moon will open in the former Einstein’s Bagels building at 441 S. Orlando Ave., within walking distance of Athen’s Pizza.
Look for the Panamanian channel to open between November this year and February 2023.
