Brecksville’s newest restaurant opened up on Monday. If you stopped by for lunch or dinner, let us know what you thought in the comments.
The Burntwood Tavern officially opened the doors to its new Brecksville location on Monday, and the response has been great so far, said general manager Scott Fisher. The staff put in a lot of work to update the old Spanish Tavern building the past two and a half months, adding new touches like a deck while refurbishing much of the original wood inside. “We worked long and hard,” Fisher said. The restaurant includes a formal seating area, an upstairs for parties and events and a separate bar. The bar also includes a cozy set-up of a couch and soft chairs where guests can enjoy a full dinner near a fire. For a menu and hours—including daily happy hours—check out Burntwood Tavern's website.

The restaurant hopes to be an engaged part of the community, said its regional managing partner.
The people in charge at Burntwood Tavern are looking forward to becoming an integral part of Brecksville. “We want to be a part of the community,” said regional managing partner Ian Hopkins. The restaurant tries to treat customers as guests—they don’t even use the word customer, he said. That community mentality can get lost in bigger restaurant chains, Hopkins said, but it’s remained important to the Burntwood Tavern as they’ve expanded. The restaurant opened in Solon this summer and announced that it was opening in Brecksville earlier this month. Residents who are proud of Brecksville’s history will be glad to know the staff of the Burntwood Tavern is excited to build on the “natural beauty” of the old Spanish Tavern building. As of …

The store, which will feature yarn and fashion, will open at 10 a.m.
A new business is opening in Brecksville today: Crochet Innovations. The shop will sell contemporary yarn and supplies, as well as handmade accessories and apparel, said owner Marianne Krier. Krier will also offer classes in crocheting. “I’ve always crocheted my whole life, since I was a child,” Krier said. Krier said she set her hobby aside when her family and former full-time job as a nurse came around, but she never gave up her love of crochet. When her grandchildren were born, she got started again by making baby blankets. Krier said the plans for the shop just came together—she had been looking for something a bit more creative than her last job working in medical records, she said. Now, she’s doing something she “always wanted.” The …

The Brecksville location closed its doors on Wednesday.
The store might not be in Brecksville, but the construction of the new Giant Eagle in Broadview Heights has certainly affected the city. Brecksville’s Giant Eagle closed its doors for good Wednesday evening. Employees at that store were given the option to move to the Broadview Heights location—about 35 did, assistant account executive for Landau Public Relations Devin Hughes said in an email. Some employees from other Giant Eagles also transferred, and another 250 jobs were created by the new store. Landau Public Relations represents Giant Eagle in the Cleveland area. The new 83,000-square foot store will open its doors at 7 a.m. on Thursday, with an official ribbon cutting at 9 a.m. Brecksville Patch took a tour on Tuesday before the …

The group moved its offices earlier this spring.
Earlier this spring, the Ganley Management Company moved 25 employees from its former headquarters in Lakewood to an office in Brecksville, bringing the “behind-the-scenes” employees closer to home for the Ganleys. The new office holds people in departments like accounting and legal for the Ganley Auto Group, said Ken Ganley, chief operating officer. The office is in the Gateway building at 8748 Brecksville Road, which Ganley purchased. The other current tenants will remain in the building, as well. “I think it’s a great fit for us and good for the city,” Ganley said. Both Ganley and his father, Tom Ganley, live in Brecksville. And the city is central to its 23 Northeast Ohio facilities. The company moved its employees in March and has …
