Roche Realty Group sells Artie’s Subs & Pizza | property
MOULTONBOROUGH – Brian and Kara Dillard of Barrington recently bought Artie’s Subs & Pizza, a popular eatery in the quaint village of Moultonborough on 1008 Whittier Highway. Rick Hagan of Roche Realty Group in Meredith represented both the seller and the buyer on the transaction.
Arthur and Patricia Tgibedes have run Artie’s for the past 27 years. Before 1994 it was called “Hi There Café”, run by Robert and Donna Adams.
The purchase included the fully stocked 1,700 square foot restaurant with indoor and take away seating and an adjoining 1860 farmhouse with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a two story barn.
According to Rick Hagan, the Dillards were originally from California and moved to New Hampshire with two young children, Anika and Alex, in 2015. For the past six years they have focused on their digital marketing and website design company. Brian and his daughter had a tradition of making fresh pizza for the family, including cheese and non-dairy vegan products. This tradition was the trigger for the family to name the new restaurant “Anika’s Pizza” and to transform it into a family restaurant and gift shop with an 80s theme.
As kids in the ’70s and’ 80s, they felt that this would create a cool setting where they could serve typical food that is served in pizza restaurants with a good variety of vegetarian / vegan options and a gift shop with unique and fun keepsakes . After the renovation, the family is expected to open this summer.
