Pizza Plant signs Canalside lease

The pods are coming.

A downtown Pizza Plant steps from HarborCenter and the Buffalo waterfront is inching closer to reality, with the signing of a lease on the One Canalside space.

Bob Syracuse, a Pizza Plant owner, said he couldn't give a precise opening date until interior work starts. "We are aiming for early summer, providing all goes well."

The 4,000-square-foot restaurant, with about 120 seats, would be Pizza Plant's first outlet anywhere in Buffalo. The One Canalside building, owned by Benderson Development, is already home to a Marriott Courtside hotel and the Phillips Lytle law firm.

Pizza Plant has been selling pizza in various forms, including its signature pods, since 1980. Led by Syracuse and his brother Dan, Pizza Plant was a forerunner in bringing craft beer selections to Western New Yorkers, not to mention gluten free vegan pizza. It has one location open currently, at 7770 Transit Road, Amherst.
