COLLEGE PARK, MD November 20, 2020 – The Original Ledo Restaurant, located at 4509 Knox Road in College Park will permanently close on Sunday, November 22, 2020. Situated on the ground level of the City’s Downtown Parking Garage, the Original Ledo Restaurant has occupied the space after moving from its original location in Adelphi. Commonly known as Ledo’s, the restaurant served pizza and other related specialties.
The City of College Park owns the Downtown Parking Garage including the space leased by the Original Ledo Restaurant. On November 17, the Mayor and Council approved a lease agreement with Chesapeake Hospitality of Greenbelt, MD. Chesapeake Hospitality will be opening a new Ledo Pizza franchise restaurant and potentially a smaller specialty food business in the 5,800 square-foot space. The new fast casual sit-down restaurant will serve pizza, wings, and other related specialties and will offer curbside take-away and delivery. The City anticipates that Chesapeake Hospitality will begin renovations in early 2021 and open in the spring or summer.
