JUST IN: Local brewery reveals big plans to relocate & expand

A Dayton-area brewery has submitted plans to move to a much larger space down the street, and if all goes well, will offer food prepared in its own kitchens and twice as many beers from its taps.

>>PHOTOS: Dayton's must-try craft beers

Neil Chabut has submitted plans to the city of Kettering’s Planning Commission to move the brewery he founded, Eudora Brewing Company, from its current location at 4716 Wilmington Pike to 3022 Wilmington Pike, just south of East Dorothy Lane. The space previously housed a roofing supplies company, and, before that, operated for several years as a Pep Boys auto shop.

The project is in its early phases, and still must navigate zoning and permit issues. Chabut told this news outlet today, Wednesday, May 2, that the projected cost of the project will reach about $1.4 million, to be financed through a combination of private investors and a Small Business Administration Loan on which he has not yet closed.

But Chabut said the new site will be a perfect fit for his brewery and its growth needs. And if all goes well, construction would last four to five months, and the new brewery could open as early as this fall.

“It’s the next step for us — we’re out of space where we are now, that’s for sure,” Chabut said. “I can’t make beer fast enough.”

The new 20,000-square-foot space would allow Eudora to seat between 100 and 150 in its tap room and to at least double the number of taps from 10 to 20 or 24, Chabut said. It will have a kitchen, and plans call for serving a menu of sandwiches, salads and other casual fare.

The brewery will also be able to expand its customer-brewing capacity and to offer a conference room and other special-events spaces, the Eudora owner said.

Eudora will step up its distribution of kegs to bars and restaurants, but has no immediate plans to start canning or bottling for widespread retail distribution. 

“The retail market is saturated right now with craft beer, so we want to wait and see how that shakes out,” Chabut said.

The 2007 Fairmont High School and 2011 University of Dayton graduate said staying in Kettering was an important consideration in searching for a new location for the brewery he founded in late 2013.

“I love Kettering. I grew up here, and I didn’t want to go anywhere else. I want to support this community. And I’m glad we found this space.”

The proposal for a new brewery is on the Kettering Planning Commission’s agenda on Monday, May 7, for potential approval of a conditional-use permit.

Cutting carbs? Noodles & Company unveils trendy new noodle replacement

The national restaurant chain Noodles & Company, which operates four restaurants across the region, announced today the nationwide launch of zucchini noodles that restaurant officials say will be spiral-cut daily at each location.

>> Caddy’s Tap House to shut down its Beavercreek location

The lower-calorie and low-carb zucchini noodles — or “zoodles” — are making their debut in two dishes: the new Zucchini Romesco, and the existing menu item Thai Green Curry with Shrimp. And they can be substituted in any other dish for a 75-cent charge.

 >> PHOTOS: Did we spot you at the Taste of Greene County?

Zucchini Romesco is topped with roasted red pepper sauce made with almonds, sun-dried tomatoes and vegetables. The  Zucchini Thai Green Curry with Shrimp pairs a sweet coconut green curry sauce with pineapple, broccoli, red onion, snap peas, lime, black sesame seeds and cilantro.

Noodles & Company operates restaurants at The Greene in Beavercreek, at Austin Landing in Miami Twp., on Tylersville Road in the West Chester area, and in South Mason-Montgomery Road in the Mason area. 

In a release, Noodles & Company officials say the company is the first national fast-casual chain to offer zoodles nationwide.

>> 6 restaurants that closed at The Greene

"Expanding our noodle offerings from classic pastas like cavatappi, elbow and spaghetti to more adventurous noodles like udon, rice and ramen, zucchini is a natural step in providing our guests with more creative options,” Chas Hermann, chief brand officer at Noodles & Company, said in a release. “In addition to zucchini tasting delicious and being a great substitute in every dish we serve, zucchini noodles also meet many of today's dietary needs, such as low-carb and gluten-free."

>> TODAY: Levitt Pavilion’s summer concert schedule is about to be announced — and you can be the first to know 

Small zoodle bowls start at $5.75, with regular bowls starting at $7.25. To encourage guests to give zucchini noodles a try, the chain is offering a taste guarantee: Any guest who orders a bowl of zucchini noodles and doesn't feel the zoodle love can get a replacement traditional noodle dish at no additional cost, company officials said.

JUST IN: Caddy’s Tap House to shut down its Beavercreek location

The Caddy’s Tap House at 2760 Towne Drive in Beavercreek will shut down effective May 6, after a run of nearly 15 years, most of them as Cadillac Jacks Sports Bar & Grill.

Servers at the Beavercreek pub are telling customers Sunday will be the final day for Caddy’s, and customers are handed a two-page list of “Closing Sale/Until May 6” special discounts that include top-shelf drinks, house wine, Bison burgers, hot dogs and turkey club sandwiches.

The local franchisee for the Mexican restaurant chain “R Taco” — which opened its first location in Ohio 13 months ago on Brown Street near the University of Dayton — applied for liquor licenses last week to serve alcohol in the 240-seat space that houses the existing Caddy’s Tap House in Beavercreek.

It’s not clear whether a deal has been finalized for R Taco to open in the space across from the Mall at Fairifield Commons. After initially returning an email Friday morning promising a statement on the fate of the Beavercreek restaurant later that day, Caddy’s Tap House owner Billy Joe Deck has not responded to multiple requests for comment. R  Taco franchisee John Slaughenhaupt also has declined to provide details of his plans for the site.

The closure of the Beavercreek Caddy’s Tap House will come one year nearly to the day after the closure of the only other Caddy’s Tap House, at 9400 N. Springboro Pike (Ohio 741) in Miami Twp. Both businesses operated as Cadillac Jacks Sports Bar & Grill prior to transitioning to Caddy’s Tap House, under the ownership of Deck. Both pubs re-branded after extensive renovations that included a greater emphasis on craft beers and a menu overhaul.

A Fairborn location of Cadillac Jacks at 1156 Kauffman Ave., remains open. That restaurant re-branded briefly as Hangar 18 Drinking Joint & Hangout, but later returned to its Cadillac Jacks theme. 

The Cadillac Jacks history also includes a pub on Smithville Road near the Dayton-Kettering border that enjoyed a run of more than a decade, from the late 1990s through April 2012.

The Cadillac Jacks location at the Beavercreek site transformed into Caddy’s Tap House in September 2014. But the changes were not popular with some of the regulars of the former Cadillac Jacks, who voiced their displeasure on social media. 

>>  10 spring and summer festivals we just cannot wait for

Cadillac Jack’s co-founder Deck said at the time that the total cost of the transformation reached $250,000. An existing patio is now enclosed, a gazebo was added to provide open-air space, beer-hall-style community tables were installed in some portions of the dining area, and the number of beer taps were doubled.

Deck said increased competition led him to renovate and re-brand the sports bars.  “It seems like everyone is opening a sports bar these days,” Deck said. “We’re trying to stay one level ahead of everyone else.” 

The Beavercreek pub endured a few police-related incidents last summer. It was the site of three incidents in July and August 2017 in which arrests were made, including former University of Dayton Flyers basketball player Sam Miller, who was arrested at Caddy's for disorderly conduct. Police said Miller was accused of pushing a female bartender and acting belligerently in the back of a Beavercreek police cruiser while on the way to jail.

FREE CUPCAKES all this week at Centerville bakery celebrating 10 years in business

A Centerville bakery will celebrate its first decade in business with free cupcakes all this week May 1, 2018.

“I have referred to our bakery as the Wrigley Field of baking,” Matt Boosalis, founder and owner of Boosalis Baking and Cafe, at 175 E. Alex-Bell Road in the Cross Pointe Shopping Center, told this news outlet. “We are dedicated to old-fashioned methods using real butter, cream and eggs. We want to carry this vanishing tradition into the future for for our dedicated regular customers and also the new ones to come.”

Ten years “is a modest time for many Dayton businesses, but nevertheless, I have seen a lot of openings and closing in that period. We opened at the worst time economically.

Local fried-chicken restaurant reopens without former manager 'Ms. Pam.' She has her OWN plans.

A Dayton fried chicken restaurant has reopened with its third name in five months, and its manager has split from the restaurant and is launching her own food trailer this week.

The former Ms. Pam’s Old Dayton Style Chicken at 2920 Wayne Ave. has become Old Dayton-Style Fried Chicken, according to Gary Keller, the restaurant’s owner. Former manager Pam Jackson, for whom the restaurant was initially named, is no longer with the restaurant, Keller said.

Jackson told this news outlet that she is looking for a new location to open her own restaurant, but until then, will serve from a mobile unit, starting later this week. The location is not yet determined. This story will be updated with any new information about a location.

***PREVIOUS COVERAGE***

A Dayton restaurant that ran afoul of another restaurant’s trademark just as it was opening its doors for the first time in December has removed its offending signage that had been corrected using duct tape — and also is dramatically expanding its menu.

The restaurant now known as Ms. Pam’s Old Dayton Style Chicken at 2920 Wayne Ave. triggered a trademark dispute when it hung a sign proclaiming itself “Ms. Pam’s Parkmoor Style Dixie Fried Chicken” in December. That restaurant name prompted a swift “cease-and-desist” order from an attorney representing Fricker’s, the local restaurant and pub chain that has taken steps to register and protect the “Parkmoor” name for fried chicken, Ms. Pam’s founders said.

As a result, Ms. Pam’s owners Gary Keller and Pam Jackson capitulated by covering up, with duct tape, the “Parkmoor” and “Dixie” on the sign in front of their new restaurant near Belmont High School. Now, that original sign has been removed, and, “Hopefully, we’ll have our new sign up by the end of the week,” Jackson said late Monday.

In December, Keller made it clear to this news outlet that he still believed his fried chicken tastes better — and more true to the flavor of the original recipe served at the Dayton-area Parkmoor restaurant chain — than any other version that he had tasted. But he said he would do as the cease-and-desist letter demanded, to avoid a legal battle.

“I didn’t want to spend $60,000 in court and lose,” Keller said at the time. “They have the rights to the name, and there’s nothing we can do about it.”

In its heyday in the 1960s, Parkmoor operated more than a half-dozen restaurants in the Dayton area, and at least 10 more elsewhere in Ohio and in Michigan and Indiana. The fond memories of Parkmoor chicken is evident in a long, nostalgia-filled thread of comments on DaytonHistoryBooks.com.

The Frickers restaurant in Huber Heights started serving Parkmoor Chicken in 2009, according to a Dayton Daily News column by Dale Huffman published in August of that year.

The Ms. Pam’s menu includes fried chicken pieces, chicken tenders, chicken livers and boneless chicken. And the owners have recently added several items to the menu, including desserts such as sweet potato pie, house-made banana pudding, German chocolate cake and vanilla cake; chicken & noodles; barbecue chicken sandwiches; chicken wraps; and beef hot dogs. Sweet tea and kids meals also are now available, Jackson said.

NEW DETAILS: Change of plans for St. Anne the Tart bakery and coffee shop

The founder of the future bakery and coffee house “St. Anne the Tart” is now targeting a former violin shop at 1500 E. Fifth St. at Labelle Street in Dayton for her new venture. 

The change of plans — the shop had been slated for 1509 E. Fifth St., across the street — has pushed back the projected opening to this fall, according to founder Megan Smith.

The new venue “gives us exponentially more space, a larger storefront on Fifth Street, as well as more convenient parking for customers,” Smith said.

“With this change, the project has been delayed to allow for updated architectural plans and possible historic tax credits.”

If all goes well, construction would begin in June, with an opening perhaps as early as October, Smith said.

New bakery and candy shop to host grand opening in the Oakwood area this weekend

A candy shop owner who launched her first storefront in a Kettering neighborhood and  later moved to The Greene Town Center is poised to take over an existing bakery and dessert shop on the Dayton-Oakwood border.

Both Karalee Parlin, owner of La Puf Sweets, and Justin Livingston, owner of Moore Dessert Please, announced on their respective businesses’ Facebook pages that Parlin will take over the dessert shop at 1003 Shroyer Road just inside Dayton’s southern border with Oakwood.

Tank’s owner sheds light on recent changes: ‘Calm down. Don’t panic.’ 

The owner of an iconic Dayton restaurant said she wants everyone to take a breath. 

Debra Tankersley said she is not closing Tank’s Bar and Grill despite public speculation sparked by newly reduced hours.

In fact, Tankersley, the widow of Tank’s founder Dan “Tank” Tankersley, said she has spent $25,000 on improvements over the last two years and plans to make more including a new front door in the style of the existing one. 

 “I want Dayton to calm down. Don’t panic,” she said.

Tankersley said Tank’s will be around for years and years and years to come and appreciates her customers’ passion. 

WHAT’S NEW OR COMING SOON

The restaurant just launched a new interactive website to replace its old antiquated  one and will soon roll out a mobile app that will allow customers to place orders.

“I am hoping it makes it easy for people to get on our website and see our real menu,” she said. 

Since it opened in 1987 in the former home of Walnut Hills Bar, Tank’s has become an iconic Dayton institution.

Tankersley announced on Facebook Saturday that the restaurant is reducing the hours it is open. 

Some took it as a sign that the restaurant would close. 

Tankersley said nothing could be farther from the truth. 

She said she simply could not justify keeping the restaurant open late nights every night because business is often too slow.  

The restaurant — which serves dinner, lunch and all-day breakfast — had been open 7 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. daily for many years. 

>> What are the best restaurants and bars in Dayton? 

 In October, Tank’s announced it would close at 1 a.m., and its kitchen would close at midnight on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Its hours Wednesday through Saturday remained the same, with the bar closing at 2:30 a.m. and the kitchen at 2 a.m. 

Starting Monday, the hours were changed to the following:  

Sunday through Thursday — 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. (the bar will close at 11 p.m.) 

Friday and Saturday — 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday (the bar will close at 2 a.m.)

Tankersley said she is sensitive to the needs of customers who would eat at the restaurant late nights, including those who work in the theater community, second shift workers  and restaurant workers. 

She and her 48-member staff are planning to hold special late nights to help accommodate their needs.
