— Roosters is planning to open a restaurant in Miami Twp., with plans to replace another nearby location.
A limited liability company affiliated with the casual dining chain bought a restaurant property at 9400 Springboro Pike, which was formerly home to Caddy’s Tap House.
Officials with Roosters couldn’t be immediately reached for comment.
Tracey Herron, with Equity Inc., who represented Roosters in the real estate deal, said the location will replace its smaller leased store at 103 N. Springboro Pike near the Dayton Mall.
The 8,500-square-foot restaurant is near the Interstate 75 and 675 interchange.
Roosters Real Estate LLC bought the property for $1.7 million in a sale recorded Dec. 1 by Montgomery County.
Caddy’s shut down its restaurant and bar at the location in May due to poor performance, the restaurant owner said at the time.
A marketing flyer by Oberer Realty, which had been listing the property for sale, stated about 54,832 people live within three miles of the restaurant with an average household income of $79,657.

— A St. Mary’s trailer and snow-plow dealer is expanding into the Dayton area.
Midway Trailers Sales was born in 1999 as a small trailer sales lot and repair facility, purchased 13 years later by Roger and Deb Miller.
The Millers expanded Midway’s selection and has brought the business to a new home in Harrison Township, the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce said.
“When we started looking into expanding the business, it was obvious that Dayton needed a hometown dealer,” Bryan Hoersten, Dayton store manager, said in a chamber release. “The new store is very exciting for everyone in the company and we look forward to making long lasting relationships with our new and old customers in Dayton.”
The new 7,500-square-foot facility has more than 200 trailers on the lot. The location will employ four people, with plans to hire another two to three in the immediate future, the chamber said.

— United Airlines will add a new nonstop flight from the Dayton International Airport to Houston.
Dayton was one of eight cities chosen by United for the nonstop routes, according to the city. The new flights will begin June 7.
"For more than 30 years, United Airlines has helped connect Dayton to the world," said Michael Quiello, United's vice president of Corporate Safety. "We are excited to announce another new choice for our customers traveling to Houston and connecting to key destinations."
The addition of this new destination will be the 17th nonstop destination from Dayton airport. Dayton airport is currently served by Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, Allegiant Air and United Airlines.
It’s been a year of changes for the Dayton International Airport — from fluctuating passenger traffic to new, discount flight destinations and a mix-up in air carriers.
In June 2016, Southwest Airlines halted service at the Dayton airport in favor of adding flights at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. The move impacted the Dayton airport’s traffic numbers and average fare prices.
Allegiant, after its first full year of service in Dayton, continues its growth with new flights down south to Florida and Myrtle Beach.
Allegiant officials told this news organization that the low-cost carrier has seen continued success in the Dayton market since its first flight in April 2016.
