Dewey’s Pizza Announces Second Location Will be Built in Columbus Market
Construction to begin on new restaurant and public pocket park in Worthington
(Cincinnati, Ohio) March 18, 2013 – Dewey’s Pizza announced today that construction has started on its second location in the Columbus market in the City of Worthington. Dewey’s Pizza has built its reputation by taking pizza to the next level with fresh recipes, excellent service and quality, fresh ingredients.
“The City of Worthington and the economic development office have been extremely supportive of our efforts to build our newest location,” said Eric C. Kohl, regional partner for Dewey’s Pizza. “We can’t thank them enough for everything they have done to facilitate the process and the start of construction, which we expect to get underway very soon.”
Dewey’s Pizza operates 16 restaurants in the Cincinnati, Dayton, Cleveland, Columbus and St. Louis markets. “We like our restaurants to be integrated in the core of historic and walkable neighborhoods,” added Kohl. “Worthington is exactly the kind of community we want to locate our restaurants in and become a local favorite.”
“We are thrilled that Dewey’s Pizza chose the City of Worthington for its next location,” said Matt Greeson, Worthington City Manager. “As part of Dewey’s commitment to the Worthington community, they are including a community gathering space complete with seating and electrical access and have invited the popular Worthington Farmers Market to use the space and outdoor facilities.”
The Worthington location will seat about 80 guests and Dewey’s expects to hire a staff of about 50 for the upscale pizza restaurant. Dewey’s is planning for the Worthington location to open in late summer.
Dewey’s prides itself on its gourmet traditional, specialty and seasonal salads, pizzas and calzones. The homemade dough for each pizza and calzone is hand-tossed at each location. Many ingredients come from small, regional vendors. Desserts are sourced from local confectioners in each market.
“While the Worthington location is being built, we encourage people to come to our Grandview restaurant and check out our pizza, calzones, salads and unique craft beers and wines,” said Kohl.
Dewey’s Pizza in Grandview, 1327 West Fifth Ave., is open Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. – 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. and Sunday 4 – 10 p.m.December 18, 2013 8:42 pm at 8:42 pm #493816

Development ruled the news in Worthington this year. For the first time in many years, economic growth, new businesses and plans for even more business were the norm. The top story, of course, was the reconstruction of the Interstate 270-U.S. Route 23 interchange. After decades in the discussion and planning stages, the project finally was started in September.
