Charlie Webb, an 8-year Army veteran and 2019 Culinary Institute of America graduate, currently operates Hudson & Packard, a pop-up shop at the Underwear Factory in Poughkeepsie. Every Monday from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m., Webb serves authentic Detroit pizza.

The pop-up shop started in September 2019 and is so popular, Webb typically sells out in under two hours. Because of the popularity, Webb has been searching for a permanent spot in the Hudson Valley.

"My goal has always been to open a Detroit pizzeria. The style of pizza I grew up eating but could never quite find outside of Michigan has always been my favorite. I want to share that with where I live now, Poughkeepsie," Webb wrote in a GoFundMe for a permanent spot.

Webb confirmed to Hudson Valley Post he has found his new permanent spot. Hudson & Packard will move to 29 Academy Street in Poughkeepsie in the near future.

"We are just waiting for the new owners to close on the building and then the lease will be signed," Webb told Hudson Valley Post.
