6th Packo's opens today near downtown ball park

By HOMER BRICKEY
BLADE SENIOR BUSINESS WRITER


Tony Packo's Inc. opens its sixth restaurant today, across the street from Fifth Third Field in downtown Toledo, a site executives said will soon draw revenue of $2 million to $3 million a year.

"This is going to take a little bit of business away from the Front Street store," said Rob Hor-
vath, chief operating officer of Packo's, referring to firm's original site on Front Street in East Toledo, where annual revenue is about $3 million.

Tony Packo, Jr., chief executive, said the new Packo's at the Park, at 7 South Superior St. near Washington St., seats 240, has 7,000 square feet of space, and employs 95, about the same as the Front Street unit.

The decor was intended to be reminiscent of the original Packo's, which dates to 1932, but it has booths and lamps that make it different from the Tiffany-style fixtures of the east-side location.

The items in the baseball motif - featuring many Toledo Mud Hens photographs and seats from the old Swayne Field ball park - were collected mostly by John Husman, a retired Blade human resources manager and baseball historian who has written several books, including Baseball in Toledo.

The downtown site opens to the public at 11 this morning, just over two months after a Tony Packo's Cafe opened in Findlay, joining units in Sylvania and in The Andersons General Stores in Maumee and on Talmadge Road in Toledo.

But hundreds of people have sampled the fare, which includes the chain's famed Hungarian hot dogs, during pre-opening events in recent days.

Company leaders hope to keep up sales at the original store by building more tourism, such as tourist buses, in a "Hungarian village" they envision.

The menu of the downtown location, Mr. Packo said, is the same as at the others, with the addition of bratwurst, Italian sausage, Chicago-style hot dogs, and some other hot dogs. It will be open for lunch and dinner.

The new baseball field has generated several new store and restaurant openings in that area, and talk of a new arena nearby could further spur development.

Mr. Packo said he welcomes a competitor, The Blarney Irish Pub & Grill, which is planned on the opposite side of Fifth Third Field, at 601 Monroe St. at the corner of Huron Street.

Ed Beczynski said he hopes to open The Blarney by June, on the first floor of a building that was headquarters for Gilbert Mail Service for many years. Gilbert moved nearby.

"I've always loved that area," said Mr. Beczynski, who owns Focaccia Delicatessen on Summit Street and EB's Express in Edison Plaza. "I love downtown [and] that area is underdeveloped."
well thats great news for sure

Tony Packo's Debut in Downtown

The famous Tony Packo's which is an hungarian restaurant that serves delicious sausages, hot dogs, chilis, and many others made a debut in downtown on March 29th and it was a huge success. It brought a lot of attention to the Warehouse District as it provided foot traffic to other restaurants and shops. Such a good day in Toledo.

This is the mothership store of all Tony Packo's which sits on the east side of the river in Toledo located in the Birmingham neighborhood; this place still rocks:


I took this shot this morning which is the finished downtown Tony Packo's:


I took this awhile back when they were in the middle of construction:

Ethanol Development News

Right now Anderson's share is over $115 a share--YOWZEE!! From last fall, they initiated plans to build 3 ethanol refineries in Michigan (1) and Indiana (2) since then everyone has been throwing money at Anderson's. Anderson's world headquarters is located in Maumee south border of Toledo which has businesses in rail, seaway shipping, grain, fertilizers, agriculture, and retail. After the refineries are opened and operating, I predict this company going to be moving up in the Fortune 500 or 1000 level with this sticker shock gas prices as more people move to alternative energies and buy new cars that takes ethanol.
