Twenty Two Mobile Juicery & Smoothie Bar plans to open Dec. 2 in City Market. Twenty Two, operated by Ross and Leslie Hanna of Fishers, is an all organic and mobile juicery/smoothie bar that started in August from a restored 1964 Shasta Airflyte travel trailer. With the move to City Market, they’ll be expanding the menu to include more cold-pressed juices, acai bowls and coffee.

Dickey’s Barbecue, a Dallas-based barbecue franchise with more than 300 locations in 40 states, is opening its first Indianapolis-area location, in Plainfield. The restaurant is set to open Oct. 24 at 2551 E. Main St., Suite 100, at the Shops at Metropolis and is operated by Bruce and Patty Hazelgrove.

Dickey’s offers signature meats, which are slow smoked onsite at each restaurant, in addition to home-style sides and tangy barbecue sauce.

Chipotle Mexican Grill has filed plans to open at 1002 Broad Ripple Ave. where a United Package Liquor store was formerly located. It’s been demolished by local developer LOR Corp. to make way for a three-story building with first-floor retail and two floors of office space just north of Broad Ripple Avenue, sandwiched between Winthrop Avenue and the Monon Trail.

Blaze Pizza, a Pasadena, Calif.-based pizza franchise, has filed plans to open in 2,200 square feet at 913 Indiana Ave. near the IUPUI campus. Blaze Pizza uses an interactive ordering format that lets customers choose their toppings as they walk down the line. The pizzas are then sent to an open-flame oven where the thin-crust pies are baked in less than 3 minutes.

India Bistro plans to open in 1,900 square feet at 130 N. Perry Road in Plainfield, in space formerly occupied by a Check Into Cash store.

Lucy’s Hot Dogs and Fries plans to open in 900 square feet at 6144 W. 25th St. in Speedway, in space formerly occupied by a check-cashing service.
LA Biotique, an eyebrow-threading spa based in Oak Brook, Ill., is coming to The Fashion Mall and will occupy about 900 square feet.  
Greek’s Pizza at 15 N. Pennsylvania Street downtown is closed for remodeling, a sign on the door says. But the phone number is disconnected and the location is not listed on its website.

Frullati Cafe & Bakery in Circle Centre mall has closed. The closing follows a lawsuit filed by Simon Property Group Inc. in an effort to collect about $23,000 in overdue rent.

  • I'm afraid they're gone.
    As a downtown denizen I think it's safe to say that my favorite pizza place is closed for good. After going their multiple times in the past month, their remodeling certainly seems to be a ruse. Greek's, if you're listening, please come back!
  • Tea Pots and Treasures
    What is going in where Tea Pots and Treasures used to be on Market?
    • Tea Pots
      I heard they opened up enlarged space next door to Chef Joseph's on Ohio.
      • Chipotle
        I'm surprised that Chipotle hasn't opened a location in Broad Ripple before now. I for one will be there opening day!
      • Surprise!
        Not the best time to find out Greek's had a downtown location... I miss having their white chicken pizza.
      • CheckNgo Gone?
        The economy must be improving if two check cashing businesses are gone and replaced by restaurants.
      • Teapots and Treasures
        The permit on the door to Teapots and Treasures says something about a Soup place?
      • Broad Ripple...Chipotle.
        watch out for the keep Broad Ripple Local crowd!!
        • Where's Charley and Barney's?
          Does anyone know what happened? I LOVED them!
          • Keep BR Local
            With such local favorites as Jimmy Johns, McDonald's, Qdoba, HotBox Pizza, Brother's, Kilroy's, Einstein Bagels, Applebee's, Subway, Penn Station (I'm sure I'm missing a few...) all within walking distance of the strip, you don't think they have a valid argument? I have to imagine that an Urban Outfitters is just around the corner...
          • Charley & Barney's
            Here's a link to the story reporting on Charley & Barney's closing. Thanks for reading.
            • Thanks
              Thanks, Scott!
            • link for tea shop
              They are supposedly on Mass Ave still. Haven't been by to see. To bad it now Tea Season and loved their tea. I just don't have time after work to go over.
            • Moved
              C&Bs is actually opening a location off of 10th St. by IUPUI. Our office is very excited about it, as we loved the downtown location as well!
            • IUPUI pizza
              It's really hard to believe the number of pizza purveyors near 10th and Indiana that Blaze will join the ranks of. There's a Marco's, a Donatos, a Papa John's, and a Taco Bell/Pizza Hut in one strip mall and a full-on Pizza Hut across the street in another. I know college kids like pizza, but good lord!

            1. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

            2. If you only knew....

            3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

            4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

            5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
