Small Business Spotlight: Gracie See Pizzeria

Gracie See Pizzeria opened in 1969 and has been family owned and operated ever since. Grace Puleo has taken over the family business and has kept using the same family recipes that have been passed down for generations. This pizzeria has been focused on family since it opened and Puleo plans on keeping it that way.

“When people hear about Gracie’s, I want them to think about fond memories of family. I work here, my kids still work here, even though they have full-time jobs, and my grandchildren will work here too.”

Over the years Grace has seen Detroit go through its ups and downs but she says they have been fortunate enough to stay open with a consistent customer base.

“Many of our regulars don’t live in the neighborhood anymore but they still come in on a regular basis. We really see an uptick in business during the holidays because people who move out of state come into town to see family and we are usually their go-to gathering place.”

Grace is hopeful that the city is going in the right direction and she thinks that the family unit is the key to Detroit’s success.

“There are still a lot of wonderful families in this neighborhood and I hope that Detroit continues to become a better place for us all.”

Gracie’s is a staple in the community because she hires people from the local community to be servers and cooks who end up being a part of the family as well. The local community organization also hosts their monthly meetings at Gracie’s.

If you haven’t been to Gracie’s, check them out at 6889 Greenfield Road and support your local community.

The City of Detroit is committed to supporting small businesses and has developed a small business directory that highlights local entrepreneurs.
