Owning a restaurant runs in (Katy) Loy's family, too. Her grandparents owned several eateries in Ann Arbor over the years, including Pizza Loy and Dairy Joy.

Researching locations, she almost opened a shop in Dundee. But Katy could not shake her Ann Arbor roots and her family tradition. Long-time townies remember her grandparents’ four local restaurants, “Pizza Loy Double D,” “Loy’s Speedy Lunch,” “Dairy Joy and Pizza Loy,” and “Loy’s Snappy Service.” Katy finally persuaded her skeptical father to let her use her grandparents’ Packard Road space. Dennis, an architect, designed the tiny triangle-shaped room for maximum efficiency, and it is surprisingly roomy and cheery.
