KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Popular Detroit pizzeria Buddy’s Pizza says it will expand to Portage.
Buddy’s made the announcement Thursday on social media, saying it was coming to Kalamazoo.
In a Friday news release, the restaurant chain said the new location will actually be at 5314 S. Westnedge Ave. in Portage, which was previously home to an Old Chicago restaurant.
Buddy’s Pizza said the 7,700 square-foot space will be completely renovated and redesigned with the company’s Detroit roots in mind.
Metro Grand Rapids welcomed a Buddy’s earlier this year. The shop opened in April on 28th Street in Kentwood and was the first Buddy’s Pizza in West Michigan.
The pizzeria has more than a dozen shops, most of which are in Detroit.
