Tony Sacco's Coal Oven Pizza Looks to Open Location in Hartland
Township to discuss approval of a liquor license for the restaurant at tonight's board meeting.
A new restaurant may soon be coming to Hartland.
Tony Sacco’s Coal Oven Pizza, is a chain restaurant with locations currently in Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Novi, Lansing and Traverse City, according to their website.
The ownership group, TSP Hartland, will be asking for approval for one of Hartland Township's Class C liquor licenses during Tuesday night’s Board of Trustees meeting.
The township currently has three liquor licenses available and according to Hartland Township Planner Dave Campbell, the restaurant will need the liquor license to consider moving forward in Hartland.
“Their business model is to have beer and wine and some cocktails and I don’t think they would want to open if they don’t have that,” he said.
Their menu includes a variety of items including salads, sandwiches and pizza, with their cooking done in a custom-built, 1000 degree anthracite coal-burning oven, according to the website.
The pizza restaurant is currently looking at the former Blockbuster location in the Waldenwoods Shopping Center and according to Campbell, hopes to begin construction in May with an opening sometime in August.
“They have a couple steps to go through,” Campbell said. “They need the liquor license approval and they need the site plan approval.”
