Warren's Cockeye BBQ cancels plan to open inside Youngstown Penguin City Brewery
It wasn't anything but unfortunate timing that has stopped the planned opening of Cockeye BBQ in Warren from expanding its food operation inside of Youngstown's Penguin City Brewery.
According to co-owner Stacey Hoover, the plan that was announced this spring has fallen through, and Hoover says that the amicable decision - while sad - just wasn't in the cards at this time because of supplier issues and increased pricing in the food industry at this time.
21 News asked what this means for both businesses, and Hoover said that they would hopefully be able to look for other opportunities in the future. Hoover said the business in the meantime is looking forward to expanding its creamery division.
Hoover added that both Cockeye BBQ and Penguin City Brewery are disappointed, but Hoover said that Cockeye BBQ would continue to hold pop-ups and catering at the facility as well.
21 News reached out to Penguin City Brewery, but hasn't heard back at this time.
