“Weird” pizzas and retro arcade games have landed in Detroit.

The new Pizza Cat Max pizzeria officially opened on Monday, in the former Bedrock-owned Ready Player One arcade in Greektown.

According to the Pizza Cat website, they serve a “delightfully weird menu” that includes pizza, chicken, and more. Some of the toppings include Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, Pickles, Carolina Brisket, and other offbeat offerings. The spot also sells steamed bagels with pizza toppings.

For the Toledo-based restaurant chain, Detroit is its first location outside of Ohio. The company also plans to open a new location in Jacksonville, Florida, although no date has yet been announced.

Pizza Cat Max partner Andre Robinson said that in 2017 he was such a fan of the pizza sauce that he tried to buy it from the owner for another brand he was working with at the time.

Instead, the owner offered Robinson the opportunity to own a franchise. This is how Robinson came up with the idea of ​​opening a store in Detroit.

“The owner and I have created an unstoppable bond,” says Robinson. “We found a great location together inside the Bedrock building, and it has everything we need.”

Pizza Cat Max has a full bar, arcade games and even offers a nightlife program hosted by Hot 107.5’s DJBJ 3525.

“Me and Dre have been in the nightlife business for a long time,” says DJBJ 3525, whose real name is Brian Jackson. “We are happy to be able to organize an installation that we can set the mood instead of adding to it. I hate going to hard-to-reach places, maybe because of the overhead. So I control the nightlife is a long time coming, but definitely worth it.

Pizza Cat’s menu offers different dishes to meet all dietary needs, including several dairy-free, vegan, vegetarian, keto, and gluten-free options.

“We want our customers to feel like this is the best pizza they’ve ever had,” Robinson says. “The best thing they put in their mouth next to their tongue is Pizza Cat pizza.”

Robinson says he sees all the positive things happening in Detroit and wants to be a part of it.

“Pizza Cat is placed in a pedestrian area,” says Robinson. “Detroit, I think, has come alive in the last five years, and it’s only going up. We want to be part of this rapid and unstoppable growth.

Starting next week, Pizza Cat will be open 10 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday through Saturday at 407 E. Fort St. in Detroit. More information is available at pizzacat.com.
