Portland Pie setting up shop in Bangor

Written by

BANGOR - A new restaurant is coming to the city's downtown.

The owner of Portland Pie Company announced plans to take over the Main Street location recently vacated by Verve, a Mexican food restaurant.

 

The Bangor restaurant will be Portland Pie's eighth location in Maine and New Hampshire.

 

The company started more than 20 years ago on the edge of Portland's Old Port section.

 

"My email and texts and phone calls of people trying to get more information and say they're excited we're coming and welcome to the community, it's one of the biggest outpourings we've ever had," Portland Pie co-owner Jeff Perkins said.

 

He said the Bangor location fits in well with the company's goal to support economic redevelopment of the state's important downtown districts.

 

Perkins said he plans to open the restaurant in early June.
