Casual Diner To Open In Blue Ash

Hoping to attract thousands of professional workers hungry for a fresh breakfast or lunch, Frank Foster is bringing a new restaurant franchise to the region.

Foster, 52, is investing more than $400,000 to open Rising Roll Gourmet, a fast casual dining restaurant at 4122 Hunt Road near Kroger. The nearly 3,200-square-foot eatery, expected to open in March, will employ nine people.

The 77-seat restaurant’s menu will include breakfast sandwiches, cold and hot deli sandwiches as well as many sandwiches made from the eatery’s award-winning chicken salad, Foster said. Menu items will run from $4 to $9.

Foster said the restaurant will appeal to all ages.

The restaurant will offer carry-out and delivery service as well as catering services.

Foster most recently was head of training and quality for nine years at Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Mason.
