JUST IN: Oakwood restaurant seeks to add 2nd location in Beavercreek


An Oakwood restaurant has taken the initial steps toward opening a second location at the Mall at Fairfield Commons in Beavercreek.

Flyboys Deli at 2515 Far Hills Ave. in Oakwood applied for a state license Wednesday to serve alcohol for a potential new restaurant at the Beavercreek mall.

Reached this morning, May 19, Flyboys Deli co-owner Steve Crandall acknowledged the plans but told this news outlet that he did not want to comment in detail because he does not yet have a signed lease for the second location.

“This would be a second location for us,” Crandall said. If all goes well, “We plan to be outside the mall with BJs, Chuys, Bravo, Fusian and MELT,” he said.

Crandall and his wife Eunice Kim opened Flyboys Deli in January 2013.

Eunice Kim spent 10 years as owner or manager of delis in Maryland and Washington, D.C. area prior to coming to Dayton, and she served as manager for about a month of Flyboys Deli’s predecessor, Cooper’s Deli.
