The originators of Detroit-style pizza are planning a westward expansion.

Buddy's Pizza announced on Tuesday that the famous metro Detroit pizzeria is planning to open a new location in Grand Rapids.

The restaurant, located at 4061 28th St., will be the company's 14th store and its first location outside southeast Michigan.

The 6,620-square-foot location will hold seating for 210 guests, and include an outdoor patio to accommodate 20 more. It plans to pay homage to its Detroit roots with a modern, industrial interior that will feature garage doors, mosaic tiling, and reclaimed beams from Detroit factories.

In 1946, at its original location near Conant Street and Davison Avenue, Buddy's developed what came to be known as Detroit-style pizza, a style offering an extra thick, crunchy, square crust. The Grand Rapids location will open this spring.
