Is Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant coming to Cornerstone of Centerville? 

Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant — which has a location in Liberty Center in Butler County as well as two other restaurants in Cincinnati and Columbus — is considering building a restaurant in the Dayton-area market.

When asked whether a new Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant may be coming to the Cornerstone of Centerville development, Cooper’s Hawk Marketing Manager Ami Vanderhoof emailed the following reply:

“From what I understand, we have not yet signed any contracts or agreements — we do like the community, and are exploring options, but at this time nothing is signed.”

Earlier this month, Centerville City Council members unanimously approved changes to the final development plan for the Phase III Cornerstone North project near the Interstate 675-Wilmington Pike interchange, allowing for an unnamed “new user” to build there. At the time, officials with Oberer Development, developer of Cornerstone, declined to disclose details of the unnamed new user.

Messages left with Oberer officials this morning, Thursday May 31, have not been returned.

Andrew Rodney, the city of Centerville’s planning and zoning administrator, said this morning that the city has not received any applications regarding the Phase III Cornerstone North project “from Cooper’s Hawk or anybody else,” and he deferred questions about prospective tenants there to Oberer officials.

FOOD NEWS: New, locally owned restaurant called Rivertown Chili and Breakfast to open this week 

A new and independently owned chili restaurant called Rivertown Chili and Breakfast is scheduled to open Friday morning, June 1 in Miamisburg.

The new restaurant is located in downtown Miamisburg at 105 S.  Second St., in what’s developing as a restaurant row of sorts, near Watermark restaurant and the Canal House Eatery, co-founder Brian Walusis said. It will be open for breakfast and lunch from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. 

>> NEW TODAY: Roost Events restaurant to open for Fraze concerts — and it’s hiring, too

Walusis and his father John have been participating in chili cook-offs around the region for more than 30 years. “The recipes that we are using are craft chili recipes that have received awards in competitions as well as various iconic chili recipes made famous throughout different regions of the country,” Brian Walusis said.

>> NEW TODAY: A new juicery is coming to Dayton and its owners hope it will be first step in revitalizing neighborhood

The restaurant’s founders test-drove the concept a year ago with the  pop-up restaurant called Clashmore Mike’s. Rivertown Chili will seat 30 inside and as many as 20 more on a porch and patio, Walusis said. The restaurant does not yet have a license to sell beer, “but we are working toward making that happen,” he said.

Here’s how Walusis described Rivertown Chili’s menu:

“We will always have a slate of chili options and are opening with John's Dayton Homestyle — this would be a style that is familiar to anyone who grew up in this area. Secondly, Clashmore Mike's Texas Red, a true Texas style chili, no beans allowed, and (also) Koko's Favorite, a vegan chili. We will also be featuring a sandwich made with Watermark's Smoked Brisket, which is house-made in their smoker two doors down from us. Sides include a house salad and coleslaw, as well as New York style cheesecake for dessert.”

Breakfast items will include omelettes, biscuits and gravy, hash browns, grits and French toast, “as well as of course, great coffee,” Walusis said.

Plans call for adding late-night hours on Fridays and Saturdays and later to add Sunday brunch service, Walusis said.

CLOSING: Pizza chain abruptly shuts down one of its Dayton-area restaurants after 6 years

Little Caesars pizza abruptly shut down one of its local restaurants south of Dayton last week after the shop had been in business for six years. The closure came just days after the pizza chain’s local franchise owner opened a separate, new location on the other side of town.

>> PHOTOS: Did we spot you at Young’s Jersey Dairy over Memorial Day weekend?

The store that closed permanently was located at 718 North Heincke Road in Miamisburg, which opened in 2012. Its final day was May 22, according to Frank Sanchez,  CEO of  Apple Dough LLC, the Dayton-area franchisee for Little Caesars pizza.

Meanwhile, another Little Caesars opened May 15 at 1892 S. Maple Ave. in Fairborn, Sanchez said. The new restaurant is adjacent to a Family Video store at Maple and Dayton-Yellow Springs Road.

Here’s what Sanchez told this news outlet about the closing of the Miamisburg pizza shop:

>> JUST IN: Arrow Wine & Spirits will head south to open its 3rd store

“It was a very difficult decision, but the store had been losing money since we purchased it as part of a bundle of stores back in spring 2017. ... We were never able to raise sales enough to even break even but kept it open the entire year in an attempt to increase traffic through marketing.”

“However, we were at the point where the business could no longer afford to stay open with the monthly losses. As a result, we chose to relocate it to Centerville, where a more viable location was available.”

The Centerville Little Caesars will move into the space that previously housed Papa Murphy’s Pizza at 832 S. Main St. (Ohio 48). Plans call for a late-summer opening of a store that will have a drive-through and plenty of dedicated parking, according to Sanchez, who also oversees a Little Caesars in Richmond, Ind. and three in Michigan.

A retail store that has served customers chocolates, coffee and wine for more than a decade in front of the Dayton Mall shut down permanently this week, its franchise owner confirmed to this news outlet today.

“The lease at the Dayton Mall location — it was a 10 year lease — has been up for over a year now, and we recently, about a year ago, opened (a shop) on Feedwire Road, so that gave us three locations in the Centerville area,” Czajka  said. The third location is on Far Hills Avenue in Washington Twp. just north of Centerville.

The Feedwire location across from the Cornerstone of Centerville development “is seen as a better location in a growing area with better parking and visibility,” Czajka said. “So we are still growing, just repositioning.
