2 restaurants seek approval at Austin Landing

Development along I-75 soon could have 9 restaurants.

Plans for two more restaurants at Austin Landing are expected to be approved Tuesday night.

Chuy’s and Noodles & Co. seek to open locations at the 142-acre multi-use development off of the Interstate 75 interchange at Austin Boulevard in Miami Twp.

The companies would join Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, Dewey’s Pizza, Another Broken Egg Café and Chipotle on the list of eateries planning to open at the development by RG Properties. Restaurants now operating there include BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, Five Guys Burgers & Fries and Panera Bread.

Miami Twp. trustees said they expect the plans, approved earlier by the township zoning board, to be approved during their regular meeting, which is set for 7 p.m.

“I have not heard of any reason we would not,” Trustee President Andrew Papanek said.

Trustee Doug Barry agreed.

“From what I’ve seen there are no major changes or surprises that I know of,” he said, “so I expect those to go through.”

Noodles & Co., a casual restaurant serving pasta dishes, has a location in The Greene Town Center in Beavercreek and three restaurants in the Cincinnati market.

It will be hiring 35 to 40 people at Austin Landing with plans to open by the end of the year, according to Erin Murphy, senior manager of communications at the Colorado-based company.

Chuy’s, an Austin, Texas-based Tex-Mex chain with one Ohio restaurant in suburban Cincinnati, “likes that site very much, but we’re still negotiating” for a lease, Ann Cleator, director of development, said Monday.

She declined to comment further.

Chuy’s is seeking to build a 7,460-square-foot restaurant with a 2,150 square foot patio at the corner of Austin Landing Boulevard and Innovation Drive near the entrance of the development, according to the township.

To be located between Field & Stream and Panera, it plans to open next year, Cleator said earlier.
