Back on January 19, the 38th birthday of Yours Truly Restaurants
, founder Larry Shibley announced plans for his company’s 10th location. That location, a former Donatos Pizza at 6141 Kruse Dr. in Solon, is scheduled to open on Monday, October 28th.
The first Yours Truly opened in Beachwood in 1981. Since then, Yours Truly has expanded its reach across the suburban Northeast Ohio landscape, with outposts in Chagrin Falls, Hudson, Mayfield, Medina, Mentor, Shaker Square and Valley View. Two and a half years ago, the company opened its first downtown location in the historic Halle Building (1228 Euclid Ave.).
“This is lucky number 10,” Shibley stated at the time of the announcement. “We’ve been interested in Solon for a long time, maybe since as early as the `80s. I’ve looked at this plaza multiple times.”
The 5,000-square-foot building has undergone significant renovations to create the same look and feel as new shops like downtown and renovated ones such as Chagrin Falls.
“These new locations, like downtown and Chagrin Falls, are what we have dubbed 'the YTR Kitchen & Bar' concepts,” Shibley added. “This one will be along those lines, but with many enhancements and tweaks.”
The larger footprint can accommodate approximately 150 guests. There is also a spacious indoor-outdoor bar attached to an all-seasons patio.
