Detroit's Kuzzo's Chicken & Waffles on Livernois is expanding.
The restaurant, an instant hit when it opened its doors in early 2015, will get a second, larger location in Midtown in 2020, Bill Shea of Crain's Detroit Business reports:
Ronald Bartell said he's signed a five-year lease for a 4,000-square-foot location in a to-be-built mixed-use development called The Woodward @ Midtown, which has long been planned by Detroit-based developer Queen Lillian II LLC. The site is at Woodward Avenue at Stimson Street just south of Mack Avenue across from The Bonstelle Theatre.
Construction of the building, which will include ground-floor retail and several stories of residential units along Woodward Avenue, is expected to take 18 months after work begins this fall, Bartell said. His own restaurant build-out will take 60 days, which leads to an opening in early 2020, he said.
