HomeMade Pizza Co. is all gone.

The take-and-bake company shut all its stores Friday, CIO Steve Bringas confirmed to Crain’s.

The publication was tipped off by signs on a couple of locations, including one at the Glencoe store that read: “Closed. Thank you for years of business.” HomeMade Pizza’s website is down as well as its Facebook and Twitter pages.

It had about a dozen stores in the city and suburbs.

HomeMade Pizza was launched in Chicago in 1997 and at one time had nearly 40 company-owned stores in Chicago, Minneapolis, New York and Washington, Crain’s said.
