In August, the Detroit Pizza Company on Woodward Avenue in Midtown's Park Shelton building abruptly shut its doors.
Now, sometime around mid-October, the pizza joint will re-open under new ownership.
Dalton Criswell, the new owner, tells Deadline Detroit that he plans to serve an improved pizza with more options like vegan cheese, gluten-free crust and possibly whole wheat crust.
He said he's focusing on a high-quality pizza with a crust with a "good rise" and a first-rate sauce. They'll also be adding sausage sandwiches to the menu, along with a bigger salad selection.
He plans to convert the shuttered, adjoining cupcake shop into a smoothies and pastry shop, which will offer regular baked goods, along with low-calorie and low-carb treats.
