Local man opens second restaurant near Hollywood Casino

Posted: Updated:
(Toledo News Now) -

One local businessman now has book-end eateries near Hollywood Casino Toledo.

Rob Socie opened the Bulldog Diner in Rossford in 2010, and now he has opened Jill's Bar and Grill on Miami Street in East Toledo. Socie believes there's plenty of potential having two businesses located near the casino.

"I just think not all people always want to spend all night in a casino, they want to maybe make a night out with stopping either before or after in an area," he said. "If you see other casinos in Detroit, restaurants are doing very well all around them."

Socie is hoping the high volume of traffic going by the casino will help drive new customers to his two businesses.
