KENMORE, N.Y. (WIVB) — Macy’s Place Pizzeria, the local pizzeria known for its zany concoctions on pies, will add a second location.
The second location will be at 3100 Delaware Ave. in Kenmore, replacing Jacobi and Son’s, which has closed. Their original location is in Cheektowaga.
“There’s a lot going on in Kenmore these days,” Nick Argy said, the owner of Macy’s Place.
The pizzeria will be in the same building as Fattey Beer Company, which recently opened. It’s also across the street from where a new cocktail bar is expected to open, called ‘Nowhere Lounge,’ and where the popular Blasdell restaurant, Black Iron Bystro, is moving as well.
Argy has been running Macy’s Place with his dad John since 2009. They make a great duo — John gets there early to make all the dough.
“He’s going to have to get up even earlier,” Nick laughed. “He’s going to have to get up in the middle of the night and make the dough for both spots. We’re trying to negotiate that… we’ll see if it happens.”
Nick is the one who comes up with all the crazy pizzas you see on their social media platforms.
Some highlights from their menu include a chicken and waffles pizza, a pickle pizza, a Thanksgiving pizza and most recently, a pizza that has chicken patties and fries.
They once made a SpaghettiOs Pizza too.
“Honestly it worked, as crazy as it sounds.”
On top of their pizzas, you’ll find 35-40 different wing flavors, along with subs, wraps and other menu items.
And this may not be the end of their expansion.
“(In) two years (we’re eyeing) Hamburg,” Argy said. “Lets run it.”
Argy hopes to open the Kenmore location by September, in time for football season.
