After temporarily closing its doors earlier this year, the sole Columbus location of a popular Cleveland restaurant concept has closed its doors.

According to owner Eric Rogers, Black Box Fix has permanently closed its Easton location, which is located at 4037 Fenlon St.

“We bravely expanded during a pandemic because we believed in our passion in service and the amazing food scene in Columbus. Unfortunately, we are announcing our closure due to the effects of post covid conditions, especially in the lack of employees for small businesses like ours, which affected this business tremendously,” a statement posted to Black Box Fix’s Facebook page reads.


The eatery, which was known for its massive sandwiches combining lobster and steak like the OMG Philly, and indulgent sides like their Stoner Fries. Black Box Fix first started in Cleveland and, first opened in Columbus in the spring of 2021. This was the concept’s sole Columbus location. Its Cleveland restaurant, located in Legacy Village, remains open.

According to Rogers, however, the eatery is still planning to have a Columbus presence, even if it’s not immediate.

“We love you Columbus and we haven’t forgotten you. We are working on bringing you a mobile food truck franchise in 2024 so u can continue to get your fix on,” Black Box’s statement reads.
