The Oakland Press reports that the Detroit landmark Slows Bar-B-Q is expanding into Pontiac.
Owner Phillip Cooley to the Oakland Press, “We chose Pontiac as the site of our first Metro Detroit expansion for the same reasons we chose Corktown. It’s an underserved community with a defined identity and potential for an exciting evolution.”
The restaurant will occupy 6,500 square feet adjoining The Strand Theatre For the Performing Arts, the city’s newest development investment and only performing arts theater located at 12 N. Saginaw Street. Construction on the Slows Bar-B-Q in Pontiac will begin in early 2015 and will open in tandem with The Strand Theatre in late 2015.
