Mahogany's owner launches "Creamalicious" after city forgives part of loan
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - One day after city officials forgave part of her $300,000 Mahogany's loan, Liz Rogers announced two new businesses.
Mahogany's Wing Champs will sell chicken wings out of a food truck. Creamalicious will feature ice cream flavors like peach cobbler and Merlot she served in her restaurants.
"This is a great day for a new culinary experience in Cincinnati," Rogers said in a prepared statement. "Thanks to the efforts of (Cincinnati City Manager) Harry Black in structuring a sound new deal in the best interest of Cincinnati, I am able to move forward with two new enterprises that I believe will benefit our region."
The first food truck is expected to begin operating by summer. Rogers said she hopes it is the first of many.
The eatery shut down in August after failing to pay state sales tax.
She will pay back $100,000 in $800 monthly installments. The city is forgiving $183,391.
As of Jan. 15, 2015, Rogers owed $283,391, records show.
