What do we know about Columbus? Known as Arch City, Cowtown, and C-bus, Columbus is home to the great Ohio State University which boasts the fourth-largest on-campus football stadium and once voted a cow in as homecoming queen. Hailing from Columbus are the author of the best-selling Goosebumps novels, R.L. Stine, celebrity chef Guy Fieri, and Geraldine Mock who, in her plane “the Spirit of Columbus,” was the first woman to fly solo around the world.
With a city that’s rich with restaurants fit for foodies and headquarters to fashion giants Victoria’s Secret and Abercrombie and Fitch, it’s no wonder that 48% of Americans live less than a day’s drive from this great city. As one of the top five cities for craft beer that also boasts exciting food options such as the North Market, Columbus is ready for the next big thing in the food and hospitality industry.
Chef Paul Schmidgall, founder of Fire & Rice in Naples, couldn’t agree more and will bring his paella catering concept, a unique and exciting communal dining experience, to the people of Columbus this spring. As Fire & Rice continues to expand into new locations throughout the US, the paella concept continues to catch on and spread like wildfire
