Two restaurants considering former Wingers building

Two serious prospects have begun considering putting a restaurant in the 1125 S. Main St. building that formerly housed Wingers, but neither has committed to a project, developer Jason Duff said.

Both of the prospects already operate restaurants in other communities and reflect the sorts of tastes and ambience Logan County residents said in an online marketing strategy they would like to see in a new local restaurant.

“They are American style restaurants that also have a bar component. Both already have existing restaurants,” Mr. Duff said. “My hope is that by fall we will have a restaurant operating in the building.”

Meanwhile, the building will undergo an exterior facelift with work on the roof, the facade, the landscaping and parking lot.

While it is more difficult to draw established chain-type restaurants to communities with less than 20,000 people, a new marketing strategy proved helpful in enticing the restaurateurs to consider the building, the developer said.
