Now that New York 2 Chicago Pizzeria is gone, we want to know what you want in its place.
New York 2 Chicago Pizzeria opened its doors at 4320 Kent Rd Ste 1 in the Target plaza in February 2011 and closed its doors some time in December 2012. Did you know that? At Stow Patch, we just recently found out and we're sad to see it go. According to the restaurant's Facebook page, the plan was to relocate to Kent in November, but it seemingly hasn't opened yet because several fans are commenting asking about the progress as recently as Jan. 25, 2013. The building has been empty since December, and we want to know what you want to see move in in NY2C's place. What store or restaurant does Stow desparately need? Tell us in the comments!

In just three months, the old burger joint was demolished and rebuilt into a modern, fast food restaurant.
They don't make 'em like they used to; and in this case, that's a good thing. The new Graham Road McDonald's, which opened its doors on Dec. 27, is a nice improvement from its somewhat cramped predecessor. The 5,000-square-foot fast food restaurant is a customer-friendly upgrade, which features a much larger dining room and dual drive-thru lanes for even quicker service, said manager David Girard. The flat screen TVs, large windows and sleek look blend together well, but the biggest advantage of the new location is the 32 additional employees needed to run it. Seventy employees now work at the local McDonald's, up from 38 before the rebuild, reports the Akron Beacon Journal. The reconstruction at 1050 Graham Road ran from October to …

Professional organizer Lynne Poulton launched her home-based business in December.
Wholly organized room, Batman! She's fun, she's quirky and that's the sentiment she was going for when Lynne Poulton launched her Stow home-based business Wholly Organized! LLC in December 2012. "I have a lot of enthusiasm for what I do," Poulton smiled. "It's like 'Wow, this room is Wholly Organized!'" Poulton dreamed of starting her business back in 2003, but couldn't make it a reality until last year when she took a giant leap and quit her job of 14 years to open shop. "I worked at a non-profit in Cleveland and I taught people work-life balances and classes on how to gain and keep employment," Poulton said. "I found myself talking about organizing time and reaching your goals and thought I could make this work." Poulton claims her …

City Council will vote to approve the plans to build at tonight's meeting.
Ever wish you could just drive through a Panera line? Well, your wish may soon come true. At tonight's 7 p.m. meeting, city council will look to approve plans to build a 8,823 square foot Panera at 1063 Graham Road. The land was formerly occupied by Big Boy, which was torn down in November. Planning Director Rob Kurtz said what makes this Panera different from the one on Kent Road is the addition of a drive-thru. If approved, Kurtz was unsure when the new restaurant would open. Are you excited about a drive-thru Panera, or do you wish something else was built there? Tell us in the comments.

Mike Weddle said after four years with the city of Stow, he plans to retire Sept. 28, 2012, but he doesn't plan to "slip into obscurity once retired."
After four years with the city of Stow, Economic Development Director Mike Weddle announced he is retiring Sept. 28, 2012. Mayor Sara Drew said the plan is to eventually replace Weddle's position. Patch: What do you plan on doing after you retire? Weddle: At first, probably relax, and putter around the homestead. I will be returning home to Virginia for a brief visit shortly after my retirement to visit family and friends. My wife, Annie, is in the process of moving her store — Once Upon A Child in the Stow Community Plaza. I will serve as her "gofer" throughout that process (there goes the relaxation pipe dream). Patch: What will you miss most about working for the city? Weddle:Without a doubt I will miss working with the other …

Polyflow gets $1.6 million state grant to grow from start-up to operational phase.
A growing technology company, now based in Akron, is considering a move to Stow and is looking for a larger site to expand the business. Polyflow LLC uses a process that takes all types of mixed and contaminated plastic and rubber waste, including tires and carpeting, and converts them into a liquid that then is used to make other marketable products and materials. The technology was invented in the early 1980s by a member of his team, CEO Jay Schabel said. “They came to us a couple of years ago. We liked the concept they were working on,” said Mike Weddle, Stow economic development coordinator. The Ohio Third Frontier Advanced Energy Program has recommended a $1.6 million grant to Polyflow. Final approval for this grant is expected within…
