OinkADoodleMoo previously operated a restaurant at 3910 Far Hills Ave. in Kettering which developed a loyal following, but shut down in August 2015 after failing to re-negotiate its lease, Meyer said.

Meyer went on to open a new location in Miamisburg, but always had an eye toward returning to Kettering. He said he was attracted to the strong traffic flow and visibility of the former brewery space on East Dorothy Lane. Renovations are already underway in the space, the OinkADoodleMoo owner said.

OinkADoodleMoo was founded in 2009 with the opening of an Englewood restaurant that later relocated to the Randolph Plaza. In addition to the Miamisburg and Randolph Plaza/Clayton restaurants, OinkADoodleMoo operates a location in the KeyBank Tower lobby in downtown Dayton.
Meyer has a wealth of restaurant experience. He was one of the first franchisees of Penn Station East Coast Subs, has served as managing partner of Longhorn Steakhouse, and as area developer and operating partner for Cici’s Pizza.

“Barbecue is definitely a niche, and we are proud that we are locally owned and operated, and focused on growing in the region where we are from,” Meyer said in a release. His children work at the restaurant and graduated from Miamisburg High School.
