After revealing that it would be opening a downtown Detroit location Tuesday, Buddy's Pizza has announced that it will be offering quick-lunch service.

The new store which is slated to open this summer will be located in the Madison Building in the former space of Angelina's Italian Bistro near Grand Circus Park. The quick lunch service is meant to accommodate downtown employees and crowds attending events at nearby theaters and arenas.
The 7,000 square foot establishment will have space for 225 guests as well as a patio for summertime dining. For those looking to grab a slice of Detroit-style 'za on the go, Buddy's will designate an area for a fast-casual experience separate from the full-service restaurant. The new location will also offer catering options.

The original store, located at 17125 Conant St. in Detroit has been operating since 1946. The modest pizzeria became famous for creating Detroit-style pizza, known for its deep square pans lined with cheese baked into a thick and crispy crust.
