New Business Spotlight: Warehouse 9 in Columbus

Warehouse 9 in Columbus

If you’ve been craving a worry-free dine-in experience at a nice sit-down restaurant, Warehouse 9 in Columbus is ready to serve you. This new restaurant and event venue is set-up with social distancing in mind.

Public Health and Safety at the Forefront

Columbus native and owner Derek Shelling said it best in an interview with The Columbus Ledger Enquirer when he explained Warehouse 9 in Columbus was “born during the pandemic.” Because of this, the then empty 10,000 square-foot space was easily set up with the “new normal” in mind.

Tables are 10-feet apart and each offer a special, safe zone for individual dine-in parties. Opening a restaurant during the pandemic allowed Shelling to design the space within the parameters laid out by the latest CDC safety guidelines.

The restaurant and event center debuted with a grand opening in late August, and business has steadily grown. Shelling said on Oct. 12 they hosted an event for Jill Biden and it “marked a new high for business.”

What’s on the Menu?

Besides dine-in, Warehouse 9 in Columbus is open for carry out, delivery, catering, and private parties with in-house catering. Shelling, who has been in the restaurant business for years, made sure to offer a little something for everyone.

From salads like Berry Pecan Chicken Salad to sandwiches like a Classic Ruben, to entrees like Pan Seared Swai, Warehouse 9 has a full menu with a wide variety of signature dishes. If you opt for carry out, and you’re a family of four, be sure to check out the meal prep options.
