ROSEVILLE, Mich. – Tubby’s/Just Baked is opening several new stores in Metro Detroit this year, with plans to open several more across the state.

The restaurant chain also plans to expand into Flint, Saginaw, Bay City, Midland, Lansing, East Lansing, Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and Jackson.

“With the popularity of our dual concept, Tubby’s/Just Baked in Metro Detroit, we are nearly sold out here.  It’s time to develop outstate Michigan cities and expand the brand,” said co-founder and President Robert Paganes. Tubby’s currently has 58 franchise locations.
