Can't Stop The Pie
Dan and Kristin Karabacz moved back to Michigan from Colorado to raise a family, and start a business.
First came the family (enter Jacqueline), and then came the opportunity to re-envision a Traverse City favorite: Alley's Market.
Known for its excellent Detroit Style Pizza, the Alley's location was the perfect spot for Dan to revive this classic style and expand the menu with specialty sandwiches and fresh seasonal salads, made with quality products from local vendors.
Enter: Charles and Reid.
As restrictions lift and the pandemic slows to an end (hopefully),
we've updated our menu! New pizzas, salads and sandwiches have been added to the line up, so we can expand the options — and you can expand your taste buds!
Due to the workforce shortage, and to support the health and wellness of our employees, we are running limited pies a day (around 70). And starting August 2nd, we'll be reverting to our previous hours: Tuesday -Saturday 3pm to 9pm.
The entire menu is available for order over the phone or in person, for curbside or counter pick-up.
Tuesday - Saturday 12pm - 9pm

If the line is busy, keep trying. We are on the phone taking orders.

1. WE ARE A FAMILY
A few guys and a couple of gals are running this business.
We ask for your patience when ordering and picking up.

and exit through back into the parking lot.
4. CURBSIDE ORDERING/PICK UP

City Parking is available while you wait, and we'll run your order out to you when it is ready.
Call To Order
Detroit Style Pizza. Some say it's a myth. Charles and Reid kindly disagrees.
Traditionally baked in pans, this iconic style is most known for its square shape and thick layer of rich sauce on top.
Whether it's simply cheese, heavy on the meat or veggies only, Charles and Reid will be tossing a Detroit tradition right in Downtown Traverse City.
That's Dan. And that's Kristin and Jacqueline.
Here is more room for an awesome bio about Dan.
DON'T BE A SQUARE
