Rapidly-growing fried chicken restaurant opening Columbus-area location next month

If you blink, you might miss another OX-B’s opening. The eatery (whose name is an anagram of BOX, since its first location opened in a modified shipping container), already planted its flag in the Short North late last year, and now it’s back again, this time in Westerville.

According to OX-B co-owner Dan Eisenhauer, the chain’s newest location, a brick and mortar restaurant in Westerville, will hold its grand opening sometime in March.

It will be located at 2521 W. Schrock Rd.


Eisenhauer noted the new restaurant, on the corner of Schrock Road and Cleveland Avenue in Lee Plaza, offers prime visibility and traffic levels to sustain the new store.

But it’s not like OX-B’s has had many difficulties keeping locations afloat, however. After first opening (out of a repurposed shipping container) in Newark in early 2020, the concept has exploded, opening other locations in Heath, Lancaster, Newark, Reynoldsburg and most recently the Short North, where it operates the kitchen of BrewDog’s High Street brewpub.
