Snappy Tomato Pizza has reopened under new management

Batavia’s Snappy Tomato Pizza has been reopened by a local entrepreneur.

Virgil Knapke, a long-time Batavia area resident, recently completed a renovation of the popular pizza parlor, which had been closed by its previous owner more than two years ago.

“We walked in and just ripped into it,” Knapke said. “We cleaned it from top to bottom, updated the place with paneling and trim, gave it all a coat of new paint. We’ve tried to give it a very attractive, comfortable atmosphere that makes it really enjoyable for families and anyone who wants to come in and eat here or pick something up to go.”
