Cadillac Pizza Pub has temporarily closed after experiencing a fire April 25 at the back exterior of its building, located at 112 S. Kentucky St. McKinney.

While some of the damage was on the inside of the building, according to the McKinney Fire Department, the building did not sustain any structural damage, founder and CEO Preston Lancaster said.

The building was empty at the time of the fire, and no one was injured during the event. However, the building has had to close until repairs are made, Cadillac Pizza Pub Partner Tony Smith said in an email.

The McKinney Fire Department is investigating the cause of the fire.

There is no estimated time frame for when the restaurant will reopen, Smith said, but the goal is to be “closed for the minimum amount of time.”


During this time, Cadillac will retain and continue to pay its employees, he said.

“Cadillac means the world to us. We are [North Texas natives] and have had a living presence in McKinney since 1995,” Smith said in his email. “We will prevail, we will be stronger, and zero pandemic or business fire will stop us.”
