Trouble & Sons Pizzeria, 133 E. Silver Spring Dr., is permanently closed after five years of providing pizza and Italian cuisine to the Whitefish Bay neighborhood.

Owners Tamela Greene and Anne Marie Arroyo say the pandemic and inability to find staff are the main reasons for the closing. They will continue to own and operate their other venture, Moxie Food + Drink, 501 E. Silver Spring Dr.

Here is the entire Facebook post from earlier today:

Dear Guests and Friends:

We wanted to let you know that we have decided to permanently close Trouble and Sons Pizzeria.

Closing the doors was a difficult decision. But after three years of coaxing and pushing the restaurants through the pandemic and navigating persistent challenges in the labor market, the effort is taking a toll. Something has to give. On the upside of all this, now we will be able to better balance our lives while we laser focus efforts on our first restaurant—MOXIE Food + Drink—and take it to the next level.

We are thankful to our amazing employees for the hospitality and many wonderful experiences they have created during the past five years. And we are thankful to you for your support and friendship.

Until we see you again,

Anne Marie & Tamela
