An iconic restaurant in Carbondale is changing ownership.

In a written release, Blake Morrison announced he will become the new owner of Quatro's Pizza, replacing Steve Payne, who owned the business for 47 years.

Morrison said he is ready to take over after working under Payne since September 2018.

Morrison is an SIU graduate with a degree in business management focused on entrepreneurship, a background that he believes has positioned him well to take the reins from Payne, who has been operating Quatro Foods Inc since he was 22-years-old.

Morrison said he's going to keep things just the way they are while figuring out how to reach more people around the globe with Quatro's merchandise.

Morrison is set to finalize the paperwork to become the new owner this month.
