Preston’s: A Burger Joint Moving into North Market
Things have been quiet for Preston’s: A Burger Joint over the last several months, but the burgers will soon be slinging again.
Preston’s is taking up residence in the North Market Downtown, 59 Spruce St. The burger joint owned by Chef Matthew Heaggans, CFO Letha Pugh, and CEO Reed Woogerd will take over the former home of Little Eater which closed in June.
“We know Columbus wants to eat more Preston’s burgers and we want to make that dream a reality,” said Woogerd. “Opening in the North Market is a great first step for the expansion of our business.”
Burger lovers will only have to wait a few weeks to get their Presotn’s fix. The stall is expected to open in mid-October.
“This town is no stranger to burger joints, but Preston’s is on another level,” said North Market’s Executive Director Rick Harrison Wolfe. “Top notch ingredients and preparation make them best in class by far. We’re proud to be their first permanent location and know they are bound for burger greatness.”
The North Market has seen several changes since the coronavirus pandemic began. Coco Cat Bakery & Chocolates made its departure in May, followed by Little Eater and Pistacia Vera in August. The Fish Guys ceased operations in September and were quickly replaced by Coastal Local Seafood, who will also be a vendor at the new North Market Bridge Park.
