A pizzeria/tavern that revitalized a vacant restaurant space when it relocated from Dayton to Huber Heights two years ago is now up for sale, and its co-owner says he is looking to retire.
The Double Deuce Tavern & Family Pizzeria was founded by James Williams and Ralph Mueller in 2009 at 17 Brandt St. in Dayton, and relocated in February 2018 to space at 5186 Brandt Pike (State Route 201) in Huber Heights. The space formerly housed C’s Pizza and, at one time, the Myung Sung Asian restaurant.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for a turn-key business,” Williams said. The listing price of $299,000 includes the business, its contents and the property, the restaurant’s co-owner said.

The restaurant is not closing, Williams said.
“With my partner in Florida, and me working a full-time job ... we decided to try to sell it,” Williams said. “We will train the new owner of the operation.”
The 4,031-square-foot restaurant space includes a fully-equipped kitchen, including two pizza ovens, a 30-foot hood, fryers, a flat cook-top, stainless steel work tables and shelving, two ice makers, stand-up freezer, beer coolers and upright coolers as well as a walk-in cooler, Williams said.
