Beer Barrel Pizza & Grill plans to open late this summer in Fort Wayne’s Jefferson Pointe.
The family-friendly, full-service bar and grill started in 1965 in Ohio and is also planning to open a third location in Lima, Ohio. In 2004, it became a part of Good Food Restaurants, an Ohio company founded by longtime restaurant entrepreneur John Heaphy and his wife, Aimee. Good Food has 15 restaurants across three brands — the others are Happy Daz and Old City Prime — and employs over 900 people in six towns and cities.
This will be Beer Barrel Pizza & Grill’s first foray outside Ohio. In addition to Lima, Beer Barrel Pizza & Grill has three locations in the Columbus area, and one each in Findlay, Maumee and St. Marys.
