Mangia Pizza on Guadalupe near UT has been shut down as part of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization plan.
Mangia founder Jeff Sayers said rent was too high and sales were too low.
Sayers said about 75 percent of the employees who are affected by the closing will be able to find work at other Mangia stores, and that the stores at Austin-Bergstrom Airport and on Mesa Drive will stay open.
He said there may be a deal in the works to turn over the operation of the Round Rock store to a licensee.
Sayers said business at the Guadalupe store was down 20 percent over the last two years.
