FINDLAY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A new 10,000 square-foot restaurant is preparing to open its doors in Findlay next week.

The Beer Barrel Pizza and Grill is special because it represents how well Findlay is doing economically. It's located on the outer edge of the city right across the street from where a Hilton Garden Inn will be built next year.

The outside of the restaurant was designed to make customers feel like they are eating inside a tavern. The Beer Barrel will serve American fare but is most known for its pizzas.

So far, 110 employees have been hired.

The Beer Barrel first opened its doors back in 1965 in Lima and has been expanding ever since. The Findlay location is the fourth restaurant and has a unique feature.

"We have a drive-thru carryout attached on the backside. Not curb service, not a window, but an actual drive-thru right through the building, where you can pick up carryout orders," said owner John Heaphy.

Doors open March 25 for lunch and dinner. The restaurant can seat nearly 300 people and the owner says he expects a full house.
