George’s Lounge | Behind the Food

It was on First Friday in August 2012 that a downtown Canton standby, George’s Lounge, reopened with three new owners. “We’re all from Canton. We saw what was happening downtown, and we thought the location was perfect,” said Ryan McMichael, who partnered with his twin brother, Aaron, with whom he has a chiropractic business, and John Degenhardt, a friend of theirs since elementary school.

Avenue Wine Shop | Shop Small

Face it, there are lots of places to buy a bottle of wine. At Avenue Wine Shop, “it’s more personable,” said Tony Antoniades, who 22 years ago bought the store at 1728 Cleveland Avenue NW with his wife, Theresa. “I get people from all over who enjoy coming here who want a little knowledge about wine and some service that they don’t get at the box stores.

Canton Importing Co. | Behind the Food

It was 1991 and Nick Regas, then 24, had graduated from law school at Case Western Reserve University. Working for an attorney in Cleveland, he knew a law career was not for him. As fate would have it, his father had just been talking about selling his business, Canton Importing Co., a neighborhood deli and grocery at 1136 Wertz Avenue NW. “I called dad up and told him, I’ll buy the business.’ ”
