Mountain Mike's Pizza has pushed back its opening date from Friday to Monday, citing delays in getting the restaurant ready to operate.
Larry Beatty, who co-owns the Santa Maria franchise, said construction and other preparations for the new restaurant took longer than expected and necessitated pushing back the opening date.
The new pizzeria, located at 1729 N. Broadway, will occupy the space that used to house a Blaze Pizza location.
