After just 13 months in business, Canton’s Local North Taphouse & Grill has permanently shut down its operations at 44282 Warren Road, just east of Sheldon Road.
Despite solid reviews on social media (average of 3.9/5 on Yelp and 4.6/5 on Menupix), the welcoming, well-decorated space that featured breakfast and dinner buffets, and Friday fish fries, has a new owner and name: The Local Tavern Bar & Grill.
SocialHouseNews.com is attempting to connect with the new owner to learn how the new business will differ from the previous eatery and the timeline for re-opening.
Thorough upgrades to property
Local North Taphouse owner Marvin Jarbo completed thorough upgrades to the property when he converted the former 4 Friends Bar & Grill in early-2022, but his efforts fell short in western Wayne County’s competitive restaurant industry.
The last Facebook post for Local North Taphouse — which was very active promoting its offerings on social media — was July 8.
Several western-Wayne County restaurants are switching to a take-out/fast-casual dining approach given the post-pandemic labor shortages that are creating challenges for traditional operations.
What approach will new owner embrace?
It will be interesting to see what approach The Local Tavern Bar & Grill will embrace.
Stay tuned to SocialHouseNews.com for updates on the new restaurant, which is “COMING SOON”, according to a banner placed along Warren Road.
