Cadillac Pizza Pub has announced plans to reopen its restaurant at 112 S. Kentucky St., McKinney. The restaurant closed in April following a fire at the back exterior of its building.

While the McKinney Fire Department reported some of the damage was inside the building, there was no structural damage, founder and CEO Preston Lancaster said.

“Preston and I have been totally overwhelmed with the amount of public support and wishful words regarding the Pizza Pub,” Cadillac Pizza Pub partner Tony Smith said in an email. “It warms us up so much having such incredible patrons in downtown McKinney.”

The restaurant has begun repair work and is hoping to reopen around the end of September, Smith said. It is also possible the restaurant will have a limited menu and hours during the initial phase of the relaunch, he added.

He teased the restaurant will reopen with enhancements as well.


“We are just so happy that the place survived the fire, and we can move forward and bake the best pies and pour cold beer again for the fans of Cadillac,” Smith said.
