North Market Downtown is getting a beefy addition.
Preston’s: A Burger Joint will be headed to the downtown market bringing their smash-grilled burgers to the heart of the city. Owned by Chef Matthew Heaggans, CFO Letha Pugh, and CEO Reed Woogerd, Preston’s: A Burger Joint sources all of their beef locally and prepares most everything from scratch.
“We know Columbus wants to eat more Preston’s burgers and we want to make that dream a reality,” said Woogerd. “Opening in the North Market is a great first step for the expansion of our business. Downtown Columbus has a rich history and is home to a lot of new businesses and residents and we’re excited to be a part of it. We want to be another great destination for those that live and/or work in the neighborhood and give visitors another reason to explore Columbus.”
Preston’s will be taking over the vacant stall at the market between American Nut Company and Firdous Express and after some minimal alterations, they’re hoping to be open by mid-October.
“This town is no stranger to burger joints, but Preston’s is on another level,” said North Market’s Executive Director Rick Harrison Wolfe. “Top notch ingredients and preparation make them best in class by far. We’re proud to be their first permanent location and know they are bound for burger greatness.”
The North Market has been in operation since 1876, providing merchants, farmers, and makers a place to connect with the community. The market brings the best of the best of Columbus under one roof creating a one-of-a-kind experience for residents and visitors alike.
