If you’re a fan of Thai Kitchen in Miami Twp. or Thai Table in Washington Twp., the owner and her sushi chef have a new concept coming soon to Beavercreek.

Hello Thai, which will be located in the former Rapid Fired Pizza location at 3301 Dayton Xenia Road, is expected to open in January, according to owner Suwapat “Sue” Whitted. She told Dayton.com they are waiting on inspections.

She says she is partnering with her sushi chef from Thai Table, Saard “Art” Sabsombat, on this new endeavor.

Rapid Fired Pizza closed its doors in March after sales never rebounded due to the coronavirus pandemic, Rapid Fired Pizza Co-founder Kelly Gray previously said.

Gray described Whitted as a “very focused businesswoman.”
