The restaurant chain, which operates a restaurant in Cincinnati and three in Columbus, is putting the finishing touches on its newest restaurant at 2819 Centre Drive near I-675 and North Fairfield Road and across from the Mall at Fairfield Commons Beavercreek.
The Texas-based sandwich chain will be Giordano's Pizza’s neighbor at the site of a former Logan’s Roadhouse restaurant. Giordano’s opened last month, on Feb. 19.
Jason’s Deli also has submitted plans to open a second Dayton-area restaurant on Ohio 741 near the Dayton Mall.

Tortorice told this news outlet late last year that the Beavercreek restaurant’s location across from Wright State University and the Mall at Fairfield Commons was appealing.
“We think its a great combination of daytime employment, retail draw and surrounding residential,” he said.
Jason’s Deli operates 260 restaurants in 29 states.

Jason’s Deli’s officials say their menu offers “healthy to indulgent meal choices for all tastes and appetites,” including specialty sandwiches, salads, wraps, paninis, muffalettas, pasta and potato dishes and 12 original-recipe soups. A vegetarian menu and a gluten-sensitive menu also are offered.
