PERKINS TWP.

Pizza lovers may have another new eatery to visit by the end of the year.

CiCi's Pizza buffet is slated to open by year's end or early next year.

The eatery will anchor the north unit of Enterprise Plaza, 4816 Milan Road.

Verizon Wireless is the only store open in the plaza.

The affordably-priced, gourmet buffet features pizza, pasta, salad and dessert with take-out and catering options, according to its Web site.

"We're excited about that," said John M. Hoty, president of Hoty Enterprises Inc., the project's developer.

Work on the 4,500-square-foot restaurant is underway.

"It's a little different concept," Hoty said about the pizza buffet. "It's family friendly ... it has quick turnaround. On a busy Friday night, you don't have to wait."

Hoty said he came across the buffet franchise about three years ago in Las Vegas and was interested in bringing one to the Sandusky area. Now it is coming to fruition.

There are about 600 CiCi's restaurants nationwide.
