New Pizza Restaurant Opening in Lansing in 2022

Just last night (Dec. 5th), with a slyly worded "announcement" on their Facebook page, Saddleback BBQ posed a very important question to Lansing:

Basically, but not quite, announcing the opening of a brand new restaurant to look forward to in 2022. No word on where the restaurant will be located. Or perhaps, it'll be an off-shoot of one of Saddleback's existing locations in REO Town Lansing or Okemos.

However, it does appear that there is a consensus on the logo in question. Check out Saddleback's most recent Facebook post below; it seems the people have spoken, and a logo was selected.

Congratulations to Saddleback BBQ and its entire crew! It's so awesome to see local Lansing small businesses thriving, especially during such a difficult time for so many. Saddleback looks out for so many in the community as well.

Saddleback BBQ Helps Lansing Community and Small Businesses

This past summer, there were a slew of break-ins in the Downtown and REO Town Lansing area, leaving a great number of businesses to contend with more than just stolen money. According to Fox 47, The Social Sloth Cafe had its back door damaged during the break-in, "which will cost them $2,000 to replace". To help these Lansing small businesses Saddleback owners, Matthew Gillett and Travis Stoliker, put together a GoFundMe to raise funds and give back to the businesses that had been broken into.
