Jim Powers of Kettering, who owns both franchises, said Tuesday that the new sandwich shop will be called W.g. Grinder’s Catering and Carryout to reflect a shift in focus to catering and pickup orders. The shop will accept online orders and will deliver with a $50 minimum order.
The space that Powers’ restaurant is departing is 2,500 square feet. The new location is about 1,500 square feet, and, “There’s no way we could make Baskin-Robbins work over there,” Powers said. The new space in the Castle Hills shopping center formerly held Mama Mimi’s pizza, which closed in February 2011.
