Popular sandwich shop closes Short North location, announces temporary hiatus

Moody Trudy’s is stepping away from the Short North, for now at least.

The eatery–formerly a food truck–known for its pressed sandwiches announced last month that its Short North sandwich shop had closed. The eatery was located at 1175 N. High St., where it shared space with BrewDog’s Short North taproom, although both concepts had their own entrances and customer counters.

Brown Bag Deli, another Columbus-based sandwich shop, operated out of BrewDog’s Short North taproom before Moody Trudy’s, which took over the shared space last summer.


According to Moody Trudy’s owner Trudy King, the closure was due to financial reasons, and her wanting to spend more time with her family. The brand itself, she says, is currently undergoing a temporary hiatus as well.

“Moody Trudy’s is in a standstill. I’m pretty sure I’m going to sell the truck and rebuild into a small trailer where I can do a really limited menu. That will allow me to do a rotation of really fun things with less restrictions,” King said.

She estimated Moody Trudy’s will be back between a year and 18 months from now.

Fans of her food can still find King in a culinary setting, however. She’s currently working a PM sous chef at The Keep Kitchen & Liquor Bar, located in The Leveque Tower.

“[The Keep] has such amazing potential. I am really excited about it,” King said.
