Root Beer Stand Reopening Soon Under New Ownership

The Lima Avenue Root Beer Stand will soon be reopening under new ownership.

Stanley Miller, the owner of Miller’s Meat BBQ & Catering, bought the iconic Findlay establishment and plans to reopen it under the name Miller’s Root Beer & BBQ.

“My mother retired from Cooper Tire, so I remember going there as a kid when she used to work in the offices. I remember the first time going over there and getting the trays, seeing the frosty mugs come out to the cars back when you actually had to roll your windows down by hand.”




Miller says he sees this as an opportunity to keep an artisan business alive and put his own stamp on it, while creating generational memories for his own kids.

The restaurant will be managed by Rachelle Sanchez, who fondly remembers going there as a kid.



“I grew up going there as a kid, getting my small root beer floats. We had little baby floats back then, they had little kids’ cups which was really cool. It’s just a pretty cool experience. If you haven’t been there you should definitely check it out.”

Rachelle worked for the root beer stand for around 18 years on and off and is looking forward to helping people create new memories once they reopen.

Miller is anticipating opening Miller’s Root Beer & BBQ in early June.
