COSHOCTON – Better burgers built by you and so much more will soon be available when B By You opens this month.

The restaurant is tentatively set to open Nov. 12 at the site of the former Arby’s on Second Street.

Mike and Linda Comella operated the Arby’s franchise in Coshocton for 20 years, but this fall decided it was time to pursue their dream of opening their own burger restaurant.

“The customers will pick what to put on their sandwich or salad and we will do the work for them,” Mike said.

In addition to burgers, B By You will have chicken sandwiches, hotdogs, coney dogs, grilled cheese, salads, eight flavors of hand dipped ice cream, plus milkshakes and hot fudge sundaes. There also will be sides such as French fries, onion rings and cheese sticks and Pepsi products will be served.

“As we go into this we also will have special sandwiches that you can have built our (suggested) way or your way,” Linda said.

Prices for burgers will range from $3.50 to $4 and a regular size order of fries will be under $2. There also will be combo pricing.

“We are going for an upscale atmosphere without the upscale prices,” Mike said.

B By You will employee about 20-25 people and a number of their staff from Arby’s stayed on with them.

“We are excited to open and get started,” said Linda.

She and Mike are from Dover and have been in the restaurant business for 28 years.

“We are foodies,” Linda said. “We love to try new things.”
