Columbus is the Duggar family of restaurant brands.
Just as the reality TV family keeps cranking out family members — 19 Kids and Counting— Central Ohio produces eatery chains.
There are the big brands – Wendy’s Co., White Castle System Inc., Max & Erma’s Restaurants, Donatos Pizzeria LLC, Charleys Philly Steaks and Bravo Brio Restaurant Group Inc.
And there are the one-time high fliers such as Damon’s Grill, Rax and Cooker.
There is Cameron Mitchell Restaurants LLC which finds time both for new brands in its hometown and restaurant growth beyond Ohio.
