Zpizza Operations Manager Summer Tarango said they were planning to stay until they were kicked out.
She said on April 13 they received notice that they'd have through August, which was good news because the summer is the pizzeria's busiest season.
Fanarof is scouting other locations in South Laguna, not far from Zpizza's first spot, according to Tarango. They are already in negotiations with two spaces, she said.
Stephen Robertson, chairman of Shelter Bay Retail Group, which manages the shop's location, said he has been in consistent contact with Fanarof during the past couple of months and let him know an extension was probable because Chase Bank, the new tenant, wasn't prepared to begin work on the location.
Robertson said he will try to keep Fanarof in the location for as long as possible and hopes to have a relocation space available in the shopping center.
Tarango said they don't want customers to stop patronizing or worry that the healthy pizza joint is going away.
"The truth is we might end up closing a couple months while building another store, but we're definitely not closing for good," she said.
