ANN ARBOR, Michigan --Buddy’s Pizza, home of the original Detroit-style square pizza, will be opening in Ann Arbor by “late summer.”
In the 71st year since the introduction of the “Original Sicilian Style Square Pizza,” Buddy’s will expand to 12 outlets throughout Metro Detroit with the opening in Ann Arbor.
It will be located in the Pittsfield Place development on Ann Arbor-Saline Road.
Buddy’s continues to pile up awards and accolades and is regularly named one of the top pizzas in Detroit, Michigan and the United States.
The chain opened its first location at the corner of Six Mile Road and Conant Street in Detroit in 1946.
Offering traditional Sicilian-style square pizza, made-from-scratch soup, celebrated antipasto salad and more, the family owned restaurant uses only the freshest ingredients and original family recipes.

Over time, Buddy’s has added a variety of items to the menu including gluten-free pizza, multi-grain crust, pastas, burgers, sandwiches and more – each prepared just as they would have been in 1946 – with the freshest ingredients and an acute attention to detail.
One of the secrets to Buddy’s success has always been our dedicated, hardworking staff, the company says on its website.
Many of the staff members started at Buddy's original location and now take pride in keeping the traditions alive at the eleven Metro Detroit locations.
