4 restaurants announce closures this month in Dayton region

In the last two weeks, four restaurants in the Dayton region have announced they are permanently closing. Here’s what we know:

🥪 Flyboy’s Deli in Oakwood



After closing its downtown Dayton location in August 2023, Flyboy’s Deli will be closing its Oakwood location at 2515 Far Hills Ave. following business on April 20.

Owner Unice Kim, who had worked in and managed deli-style restaurants on the East Coast for 15 years before opening Flyboy’s with her husband, Steve Crandall, passed away earlier this year after battling cancer. Crandall, a retired Air Force colonel, suffered a major stroke last year and is still recovering in a long-term care facility.

Given the circumstances, the family has decided to close the deli, an April 9 Facebook post from the deli stated.

According to WCPO in Cincinnati, four Tri-State Frisch’s restaurants have closed within the week.
