Rachel Betzler, a spokeswoman for The Kroger Co., said the grocery chain’s Dayton stores already begins Sunday sales at 10 a.m. so the new rules won’t affect Kroger’s local operations.
ThreeWitt Enterprises Inc. operates 10 Buffalo Wild Wings Grill and Bar restaurants and three Milano’s Atlantic City Subs, all of which have D-6 permits, said David Fisher, a partner in Dayton-based ThreeWitt.
The change will make it easier to give customers what they want and also allow the restaurant to train staff to adhere to a single standard as to when they can serve alcohol, Fisher said.
Being allowed to serve liquor and wine earlier on Sundays also could mean incremental gains in sales, Fisher said. “We may see some financial benefit from it,” Fisher said. “It’s definitely not going to hurt.”
