Square pizza in Pittsfield Center
From the December, 2017 issue
For more than seventy years Buddy's Pizza has been a beloved Detroit tradition--serving the original Detroit-style square pizza at family gatherings, celebrations, and postgame parties. Its gradual expansion finally reached Ann Arbor in October, when the twelfth Buddy's opened in Pittsfield Center, in front of the Meijer on Ann Arbor-Saline Rd. During the grand opening, diners supported Buddy-to-Buddy, a U-M-based program that trains volunteer military veterans in peer support and resource sharing. "We raised over $1,500 for this terrific program," says Wesley Pikula, Buddy's vice president of operations.
Buddy's has a banquet room, a full bar, and outdoor seating. Pikula touts the "urban industrial design element ... we are bringing a little bit of the Motor City to our neighborhoods."
Pikula says that the company is thrilled to be in Ann Arbor. "We've been involved indirectly for years, supporting U-M football--hosting Coach's Corner in our Livonia location in the Nineties, for example. The city and its surrounding areas have been so welcoming and supportive of us."
Buddy's Pizza, 3153 Ann Arbor-Saline Rd., 792-9130. Sun.-Thurs. 11 a.m.-10 p.m., Fri.-Sat. 11 a.m.-11 p.m., closed Mon. buddyspizza.com
