What Pizza Chains Originated in Michigan?
Some of the biggest pizza chains come from Detroit and all around Michigan. It really shows you a little something about the variety of pizza the city has to offer the state and the rest of the country.
Jet's Pizza originated in 1978 in Sterling Heights, Michigan, which is a suburb of Detroit. They specialize in Detroit Style Pizza but also make the thin crust, hand-tossed round, and other types of pie. Jet's has become one of my favorites since I have moved back to Michigan.
Little Caesars Pizza
Little Caesars has been a part of my entire life. They originated in 1959 in Garden City, Michigan where Mike and Marian Ilitch invested their life savings into their first store. I can't say enough about their crazy bread. Sometimes that is all I order.
Hungry Howies got their start in Taylor, Michigan, back in 1973. Hungry Howies became the home of the flavored crust. I used to work in Birmingham, Michigan, many years ago delivering carpet and tile to job sites all around the Detroit area. That is when I discovered Hungry Howies and their amazing flavored crust. When I lived in Indiana, I used to get Hungry Howies to remind me of home.
Domino's was originally called DomiNick's when two brothers purchased the store in 1960 for only $500 in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Five years later the two owners renamed the business Domino's and it turned out to be the best decision they ever made.
Cottage Inn Gourmet Pizza got its start in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in 1948 and was the first pizza restaurant in the city. They offer a diverse menu of Italian and Greek dishes as well as their amazing pizza.
You cannot get any more Detroit than Buddy's Pizza. Buddy's began in 1946 with their first location on six-mile in Detroit. 75 years ago someone had the idea of using a steel auto-pan to make a pizza in and the rest is history. Pizza made in an auto-pan...now that's Detroit.
How Did Detroit Become the Best Pizza City in America?

Us Michiganders knew all along that we had better pizza than Chicago and New York and now the numbers back it up.
