A Liberty Twp. restaurant plans to open its second location as part of a planned $25 million development just north of Lebanon’s historic downtown.
If all goes as proposed, new projects will include: a $450,000 veterans memorial, a $15 million development featuring restaurants, a brew pub, apartments and town homes, a $7 million fire station and a $3 million event center.

They would be built in the coming year along the 0.7-mile stretch of Broadway Street between Berry Intermediate School and the Warren County Fairgrounds.
Cozy’s Cafe and Pub is one of three restaurants that have signed letters of intent to open new locations as part of the development.

The restaurant opened at 6440 Cincinnati-Dayton Road in Liberty Twp. in 2016, two years after owner Jan Collins opened Cozy’s Cottage.
Cozy’s Cafe and Pub is an expanded version of Cozy’s Cottage, an eatery featuring wine, tap handles pouring beers from Cincinnati breweries and signature cocktails made from the restaurant’s herb garden.
In her letter of intent, Jan Collins, the Cozy’s proprietor, wrote, “From what we have seen thus far, the city of Lebanon project is the one.”
