DENIED: No new liquor store coming to Miami County after all, state says

One of the three new liquor stores that were supposed to be coming to the Dayton area will not be happening after all because state officials  have rejected applications for it.

A spokeswoman for the Ohio Division of Liquor Control has confirmed to this news outlet that no contract will be awarded for what had been envisioned as a new liquor store in Piqua.

The division of liquor control received three applications for the new Piqua store, which was to be located within a two-mile radius of a location on East Ash Street (Ohio 36) in the city. Two applications were evaluated and rejected because they did not meet minimum requirements, the spokeswoman said, while a third applicant withdrew an application because the applicant was awarded a contract in a different region. 

>> EARLIER COVERAGE: 3 new liquor stores coming to the Miami Valley

The Ohio Department of Commerce Division of Liquor Control had announced in November that it was seeking to add 20 new liquor-agency stores statewide, including three in the greater Dayton area, and invited entrepreneurs and potential store owners to submit applications to be awarded those state liquor agencies. The state does not mandate a specific location for the new stores, but instead identifies points on a map in areas its research suggests are under-served, and invites potential applicants to pitch business plans for stores within a two-mile radius of that spot.

Last week, liquor-control officials confirmed that a contract for a new Mason location had been awarded to Arrow Wine & Spirits, which operates two Dayton-area stores in Kettering and Washington Twp. The contract award recipient for a new state liquor agency in south Centerville has not been announced.

The applications are evaluated and scored based on several criteria. Applicants must have experience operating a retail business or equivalent experience, and must have sufficient financial resources to establish and manage a retail business, according to the division of liquor control’s web site.

Last year, attempts to add a state liquor store in Fairborn fizzled when liquor-control officials determined none of applications met the standards.

Jim Canepa, superintendent of the Ohio Division of Liquor Control, told this news outlet last year that there had been “no thoughtful strategy” in recent years of how to grow the liquor business that the state essentially owns and operates.

“We will look for spaces to tap into revenue,” he said. Under Canepa’s leadership, the division of liquor control will attempt to demystify spirits and focus on the stories behind some of the craft spirits available — and being produced — in the state, much as Ohio craft breweries and wineries have done, the superintendent said.

“We want to develop a new customer experience,” while also promoting responsible consumption, Canepa said.

Vermont wants remote workers, will pay $10,000 to move

If eligible, workers who relocate can get up to $5,000 a year over two years, with a $10,000 maximum because of the state’s new remote worker grant program, CNN Money reported.

But if you live in Vermont, then you’re not eligible, Burlington Free Press reported.

“We think Vermont is well-positioned to capitalize on the increase in the availability of remote work,” Michael Schirling said.

Schirling is the state’s Agency of Commerce and Community Development secretary.

He says the state thinks that it will be a good offer for couples where one member has a more traditional job offer in Vermont while the second can work remotely, the Free Press reported

Here’s how to qualify:

  • Must work in a home office or a co-working space
  • Full-time employee of a company based outside Vermont
  • Full-time Vermont residents after Jan. 1, 2019.

What is covered by the $5,000-$10,000 grant:

  • Moving expenses
  • Membership fees for co-working spaces,
  • Computer software
  • Computer hardware
  • Broadband

Money will distributed on a first-come, first-served basis and there are limits each year for the total amount of money available, CNN Money reported.

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.

“Sunday hours were such a success last season that we have decided to extend this program even further into the year,” 2nd Street Market Manager Jimmy Harless said in a release. “We always strive to address the needs of the community, whether it’s extending hours or hosting vendors who accept SNAP benefits.”

The response “exceeded our three key performance indicators related to attendance, customer satisfaction and vendor sales expectations,” market officials said last October when they announced the added Sunday hours would return this summer.

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.”

“The breakfast will be a star in its own right. Our breakfast chef, Mason Downey, hails from Oregon, and he came up as a breakfast chef in the National Park System, working at Yosemite, Denali, Bryce Canyon, and Yellowstone and also worked at the Cowboy Smokehouse in Utah.”

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.
