“A franchisee for the Florida-based Tony Sacco’s restaurant signed a deal last week to bring its coal oven pizza to Ann Arbor,” according to Annarbor.com.

Franchise owner Keith Gulian signed a lease for a space in the outlot building next to Potbelly Sandwich Shop in the Cranbrook Village Shopping Center in Ann Arbor. Located on West Eisenhower Parkway, the center is anchored by a Whole Foods Market and REI.

The Tony Sacco’s menu consists of coal oven-fired pizzas, sandwiches, salads and desserts. It also carries beer and wine.

According to the website: “Everything we serve is prepared fresh daily. We have no freezers, fryers, grills or microwave ovens. Everything we make is made fresh to order and baked in our coal oven.”

The restaurant currently has 10 locations in six states. There are two other locations in Michigan: a newly opened one in Lansing and one in Novi.”
