The restaurant was acquired in 2021 by restaurant management company The One Esca Group based out of Dallas, Texas, that owns and manages over $18 million in annual sales with 14 locations in Texas and Ohio. Spaghetti Warehouse in Dayton, Akron, and Toledo; Corner Kitchen in Dayton; and Mad for Chicken in Columbus are the One Esca Group Ohio locations, while Texas locations include Blackfriar Pub, Sugarbacon, Dog Haus, Taste of Chicago, Mad For Chicken and Tequila Delicious.
