Mexican eatery closes; yogurt shop to opens

A Kettering Mexican restaurant has closed, a Centerville yogurt shop will host its grand opening this weekend, and a Washington Twp. sub shop has a new name and ownership.

A sign on the front door of El Rio Grande restaurant at 2801 S. Dixie Drive alerts customers to its closing. The restaurant previously operated as El Rancho Grande, a regional chain that sold it in November 2011. The building once housed The Colony Club, which closed in the 1990s.

In Centerville, SoYo Yogurt, an independently owned shop serving frozen yogurt and ice cream at 971 S. Main St., will host a ribbon-cutting at 11 a.m. Friday, June 22 and is offering a 25 percent grand opening special Saturday and Sunday, according to Kevin Hollon, who owns the shop with his wife Susan Hammock Hollon. The couple previously operated I Can’t Believe It’s Yogurt franchise shops in Springboro and Middletown. The shop employs 14, and is open daily. For more information, call (937) 496-5574.

And in Washington Twp., Horton’s Hoagies has replaced Quiznos at 1512 Miamisburg-Centerville Road. The new sub shop is owned by brothers Sam, Dave and Jim Horton. Dave and Sam Horton were previously involved in the management of the Quiznos franchise store that operated for more than 10 years at the site on Ohio 725.

Horton’s Hoagies specializes in toasted subs, soups and salads and is open daily for lunch and dinner. For more information, call (937) 436-7849.
