Acre’s Second Location is Nearing Completion
Inspired by high demand in the Grandview area, Acre is opening a second location in the Fifth by Northwest neighborhood next month at 1717 Northwest Boulevard.
“We have been getting a lot of feedback from customers that they’re interested in seeing our food closer to their neighborhood,” Mills said.
He’s also noticed, through the Uber Eats app integrated this fall, that many orders were headed to Grandview and Fifth by Northwest. With how the neighborhood has been changing, and with its blend of working professionals and families, Mills said it seemed like a good place to put something new and local in.
“It seems to be a neighborhood people like to live in, walk in and support local businesses,” Mills said. “With our model of sourcing Ohio ingredients, it just seemed logical to bring that here.”
Being on the thoroughfare to Upper Arlington is a plus, too, since many of their frequent customers come from there.
The farm-to-table restaurant, established in the Old North neighborhood in 2014, offers locally sourced bowls, salads, soups, wraps and sandwiches in a fast-casual style. With the majority of their orders heading out the door, their new location will have a to-go pick-up spot, a slight deviation from their Old North location’s drive-thru window. Place the order, park outside, and an Acre associate brings the food out.
The menu is getting some alterations as well. It’s out with the mole bowl and in with the tikka bowl, combining cauliflower, chickpeas, cherry tomatoes and a tikka masala sauce. Beers will be on tap, varieties rotating regularly. Their house made sodas will be kept in kegs for easier distribution as well.
Having an established Old North store, Mills said his time will be concentrated on Acre’s new location. Based on the rate of construction, founder Todd Mills said their new spot should be ready for business in the next two to three weeks.
