Roll On In sushi burrito franchise adding new location, booze-infused ice cream

New business news from around Butler and Warren counties:

Roll On In

The owners of a local sushi burrito franchise are adding a new Warren County location and bringing alcohol infused ice cream there and to its Hamilton location.

Roll On In debuted July 14 at 6052 Ohio 48 in Maineville, the former home of River’s Bend Wine & Spirits.

In about mid-September, the restaurant will add Buzzed Bull Creamery, "a family friendly liquid nitrogen creamery hand-crafting the freshest ice cream and milkshakes," according to co-owners John Kallenberger.

Harnessing the power of the liquid nitrogen, the new addition can infuse alcohol into the ice cream for customers 21 years old and older, Kallenberger said.

A Buzzed Bull Creamery will open inside the Hamilton location of Roll On In this fall, he said.

Kallenberger and Michael McCarthy, both of Cincinnati, started Roll On In in Lebanon in 2016, adding locations in Cincinnati’s Clifton neighborhood the same year, Deerfield Twp.’s Landen neighborhood in 2017 and Hamilton’s West Side in 2018.

“Landon is closing Aug. 1 so we can direct our customers to the new location,” Kallenberger told this news outlet. “The new location … was a more accessible location for our customers to come in and out of. Plus, the area was sold to a franchisee, so we tried to find the best location for him to take over the area.”

Kallenberger said Roll On In will use the Landen land and location as a catering and food truck location for its growing needs in that part of the business.

The Roll On In franchise continues to expand, with a new location recently opening in Wilmington, North Carolina. There are three locations being built in Atlanta and one each in Cleveland and St. Louis, Kallenberger said.


A new McDonald’s is rising where a former location of the fast food giant once stood.

The new restaurant should open by late August or early September because “a complete rebuild typically projects to be a 90-day process,” according to Ashley Staples, a spokeswoman.

The restaurant will feature a double drive thru with an outside digital menu board, touchscreen ordering kiosks, bus parking and 24-hour operations, Staples said.

“During the planning process, McDonald’s and the City of Monroe worked together to create a beautiful building for the community that is truly one of a kind,” she said.

McDonald’s is hiring 80 part-time and full-time positions including shift management, kitchen and service crew, third shift crew and maintenance, Staples said.

“We currently have several employees working/training at other locations who will come back to their home location, Monroe,” she said.
