According to this article posted on indystar.com, a slowly growing brewhouse chain could soon be coming to Columbus. And if their new location in Indianapolis is any indicator of location, it could be coming more specifically to Downtown Columbus.
From the article: “Restaurateur Scott Wise doesn’t think of himself as a chain restaurant operator, but when Scotty’s Brewhouse opens its doors at 1 Virginia Ave. in Downtown’s Jefferson Plaza by January, it will be his fifth restaurant. Wise wants his family-friendly eateries to maintain a Mom & Pop/neighborhood atmosphere that defies the chain restaurant, cookie cutter stereotype.
“My challenge as we grow is to try to keep an independent feel,” Wise said. That’s partly why he has rebuffed, for the time being, overtures to open restaurants in other cities. Growth for the sake of growth just isn’t in his business plan, though he is planning to look at opening outlets in Chicago, Columbus, Ohio, and Charlotte, N.C.“
