Buddy's Pizza has long been a staple on the east side of Michigan, and soon West Michigan could be seeing Buddy's locations popping up.

WXYZ reports that Buddy's has teamed up with an investment firm, CapitalSprings, to spread the franchise beyond the Detroit area. Their vision is to bring their own unique style of pizza to "the Midwest and beyond."

As a lover of Buddy's, I can tell you that not only is their pizza delicious, their salad (and signature salad dressing) isn't to be missed, either!

Buddy's, the originator of Detroit-style pizza (according to them), has been around in Detroit since 1946.

There's no word yet on where they will be building new locations, but let's keep our fingers crossed for a West Michigan location or two.
