Buddy’s Pizza is a mainstay in Michigan, and the restaurant has been expanding over the state the past several years.

Now, however, the popular pizza joint is closing one of its newer locations.

The Buddy’s Pizza franchise location in Delta Township has announced a consolidation and relocation to its Okemos location. The news came via Facebook, with the chain stating, “We are closing effective Sunday, September 18 (last day of business will be Saturday, September 17), as we are consolidating/relocating business to our Okemos location. Thank you for your patronage through COVID and over the last two years. Please visit us at our Okemos location at Grand River and Okemos Rd. -Buddy’s Pizza.”

The restaurant’s last open day at the W. Saginaw Highway location will be Saturday (Sept. 17). The location on West Saginaw Highway opened in June 2020 with limited carryout-only service but eventually opened for full service. The Okemos location opened in March 2022. Right now, there are no plans to close other Michigan locations, according to Buddy’s.
