13 Washington, D.C. Cosi restaurants will be changing their ownership from Cosi Inc. to Capitol C Restaurants, LLC in a deal worth $8.4 million, which translates to roughly 4 million Chicken T.B.M. sandwiches and 2 million Signature salads.
Capitol C plans to expand its Cosi restaurant reach by opening an additional 6 locations in the district. There are currently 143 Cosi establishments throughout the U.S. and U.A.E., 44 of which, like Capitol C’s locations, are operated as franchises.
As a big fan of Lost Dog Café, which has drawn crowds in Westover for years, I was thrilled to see a “now open” sign at its new location this weekend, across from the Arlington Cinema ‘n’ Drafthouse.
Like the original, this one has a menu with scores of specialty pizzas, 50-odd sandwiches, and more beers than I could easily count. My man and I checked it out last night, and to our yummy dinner added a Bad Dog a la Mode brownie sundae to celebrate the opening.
This area of Columbia Pike is being redeveloped, and Lost Dog is one of the first new businesses to open there, in the retail area under the first new condos. So more Lost Dog, less waiting. Oh, happy day!
