A metro Detroit pizza chain with West Michigan locations is launching a slew of offers to drive business, as well as hiring across all its Michigan eateries.

Farmington Hills-based Buddy’s Pizza said it is offering “something for everyone” with a collection of new offers and opportunities:

  • Happy hour all day, every day during August
  • Detroit baseball watch parties
  • A catering program to bring together small groups of friends, co-workers and family
  • Free delivery for all customers through the DoorDash app
  • Hiring at all locations statewide

“Our core ingredients haven’t changed since we started making the original Detroit-style pizza more than 74 years ago, but these new programs and offerings allow us to engage our customers in a whole new way and create new experiences,” said Burton Heiss, CEO of Buddy’s Pizza. “We created these programs for our customers to have a more personalized way to connect with the Buddy’s Pizza brand and provide them with more opportunities to share our food with friends and family.”

More details on each opportunity are as follows:

All-day, every day happy hour

Buddy’s made August Happy Month with specials offered all day, every day at the bar, in the dining room and on the patio. Guests can enjoy the following at all locations for the entire month:
