Tomís Tabooley at 2928 Guadalupe St. closed on Halloween. Both the restaurant and grocery at the location on the Drag closed due to lack of consumer interest, according to owner J.D. Torian, who also owns Austinís Pizza.

An Austinís Pizza will move into the space by the Super Bowl, according to Torian, who says the other Austinís Pizza location on the Drag will stay open. Torian said all Tomís employees were offered jobs at Austinís Pizza locations. Torian said that the new location will help increase deliveries to East Austin, an area of importance to the chain, and alleviate a growing problem of lack of oven capacity in Central Austin that has occasionally led to some long wait times and temporary suspension of online ordering at the current Drag location. Austinís Pizza plans to have a map of the expanded delivery zone in the coming weeks.
