Aubree's Pizzeria & Tavern planned for ex-North Point restaurant space in Dexter
Special to AnnArbor.com
Also listed on the village’s application for the transfer is Ron Evangelista. He said he couldn’t confirm the new restaurant would be an Aubree’s outlet, but he did say a family-style pizza and sports bar is in the planning stages.
Demolition of the former restaurant’s interior is under way, Evangelista added.
Aubree’s Saloon has been an anchor destination in Ypsilanti’s Depot Town for many years, more recently expanding to locations in Ypsilanti Township and Northville.
Aubree’s owner Bill French and Andy French, his son, have been developing plans to franchise the concept, with the goal of opening several regional locations by year-end.
“We think we have a great story to tell,” Andy French told AnnArbor.com for a recent story. “Michigan’s economy has been tough for a number of years, and we’ve been able to be successful in it. We believe the pizza-beer-casual restaurant setting will be successful in any economic time.”
According to council documents, Amy Bulszewicz of Pinckney is the president of Dexter Capital LLC, which is registered with the state under the name Rob Bulszewicz of Livonia. Amy Bulszewicz was not available to answer questions about the restaurant.
The Dexter outlet of Aubree’s Pizzeria & Tavern would be the sixth under that name and should open by mid-June, according to the village. It also plans to offer outdoor seating.
