JAC's Cekola Pizza returns to their hometown of Kalamazoo after adding a location on 9th Street in Oshtemo.

JAC's has been in the Portage Plaza in South Portage for years and recently opened a new location near the corner of 9th and Stadium Drive.

Cekola Pizza is a thin crust pie with a history and taste that goes back decades to a small outlet on Kalamazoo's near-east side on Gull Street.

The new JAC's in Kalamazoo will have a similar menu to the Portage location and offer a larger size buffet lunch. The new location featured lots of TVs with a sports bar feel, similar to the other location.

The Kalamazoo restaurant at 3112 S. 9th Street has changed hands a few times, from Mexican as Mi Ranchito until 2012 and most recently Italian as Mangia Pizza & Pasta. The renovation to JAC's has taken nearly a year, with news of the Cekola family taking over the 9th Street storefront in March 2018.
