The Stop, always known for its pizza, has expanded the menu

On April 2 a Baxter staple will officially regain its footing.

Whistle Stop Pizza, Family and Fun (The Stop) has new ownership (the owners of Henry Brother Roofing purchased the business earlier this year), and the Chamber of Commerce is celebrating the transition with a grand re-opening and ribbon cutting in Baxter.

The restaurant is located at 303 Broad Street. 

“Come join the festivities as we mark the grand re-opening of Whistle Stop,” said the Chamber. “Whistle Stop holds a special place in the heart of the Baxter community and has now passed into new ownership.”

The Stop, always known for its pizza, has expanded the menu with mini burgers, homemade ice cream and delivery. 

In January, The Stop’s previous owners announced Henry Bros Roofing ownership had acquired ownership of the pizza joint following a scary health situation that forced a change.

“It’s true we are selling the restaurant, for health reasons, our family has wished me to stick around a little longer, my heart attack put the hammer on the head …,” wrote the previous owner on Facebook.

They expressed appreciation to the Whistle Stop’s customers.

“It has been a pleasure and an honor to have served you all, to have shared some laughs, and hugs, to meet and get to know you all as a family,” they wrote. “… Thank you all for your support, prayers, and sharing memories together that will last a lifetime, it was an honored to have served each and every one of you … until we meet again.”

The Stop even offers live music from time to time. 

“Come celebrate the new ownership with us and try out some of their amazing food while you’re there,” said the Chamber.

The ribbon cutting will begin at 10:45 a.m. tomorrow, April 2.  For more information, call 931-858-3287 or visit HERE.
