Dayton, Ohio / No. of units: 4
OinkADoodle Moo, a Dayton area favorite, is on the move into more markets. Known for its award-winining BBQ, the company currently has four Ohio units, including one at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, and is eyeing Columbus, Toledo and Cincinnati for 2012 with a goal of 25 units by 2015.
The brand is developing an area-representative agreement to allow franchisees to purchase more than one unit at time. OinkADoodle Moo also recently inked a deal to serve ice cream from Young's Jersey Dairy, a Ohio farm that attracts more than 1 million visitors each year.
