Kristen Calverley and her husband, Nate, first started Michigan&Trumbull in Pittsburg, December of 2017. As Michigan natives, these two were searching for Detroit-style pizza, and decided to perfect their own, giving them Detroit-style names like “Packard Pepperoni” “Woodward White” and “Cass Corridor”. Kristen and her family recently returned home to Michigan and opened their own brick and mortar store in Corktown just over 2 months ago!
