Soller opened the 8,300-square-foot restaurant in Washington Twp. in October 2019 with a dining room seating about 230 in a casual atmosphere.
It debuted a few years after the original Old Scratch, which is just south of downtown Dayton on South Patterson Boulevard near Miami Valley Hospital.
“When we first opened the Centerville location, we didn’t have the opportunity for a patio at that time,” he said. “As time evolved we figured out how to do one in a way that made sense for us and the community.”
The suburban location opened with about 60 employees. Soller said he doesn’t expect to add jobs with the expansion.
The restaurant opened with three wood-burning ovens to accommodate cooking Old Scratch’s signature Neopolitan-style pizzas.
Old Scratch also serves salads and specialty items. It features 20 taps devoted to craft beer, and four taps reserved for wine, and also offers cocktails.
The restaurant’s hours are Tuesday – Thursday, 11 a.m. – 9 p.m.; Friday – Saturday, 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m. – 9 p.m., according to its website.
