LANSING, MI (WILX) -- Detroit's Buddy's Pizza is branching out to the Lansing area this spring.

The pizzeria is coming to Delta Township, according to the township supervisor.

Kenneth R. Fletcher told News 10 that Buddy's will set up shop where the old Mattress Firm was located on West Saginaw Highway across from the Lansing Mall.

Buddy's CEO Burton Heiss said the company has always wanted to expand and felt that the Lansing area was a good fit.

"We’re looking forward to opening in spring of 2020 and continuing to bring the original Detroit-style pizza to more people throughout Michigan,” Heiss said.

The opening of the new restaurant is expected to create 80 to 100 available jobs for Lansing residents.

People who are interested in working there can start applying mid-January on its website, www.buddyspizza.com

Buddy's Pizza has been dubbed the "original Detroit-style square pizza," serving their slices with cheese underneath the sauce.
