Nexus Park adds new pizzeria tenant

Nexus Park in Columbus will be getting a new pizza restaurant.

According to the former Fair Oaks Mall, Bloomington’s Mother Bear’s Pizza is planning to occupy just over 9,000 square feet in the facility with an opening in March of next year. The space will be next door to the existing Riviera Maya Mexican Restaurant.

Mother Bear’s opened in Bloomingon in 1973 and opened a second restaurant on the west side of the city in 2016.

In 1982, People Magazine selected the pizzeria as “one of America’s top nine pizzas”.

Nexus Park on 25th Street in Columbus is being developed jointly by the city of Columbus and Columbus Regional Health as a center for health, wellness and recreation.
