Galley Group Inc. has multiple restaurant incubators in Pittsburgh, Detroit, and Chicago and recently opened Ohio City Galley, at the corner of 25th and Detroit Avenue in Ohio City’s historic Forest City Savings and Trust Building. To fund a gap, the City provided an $180,000 loan through the Equipment Loan Program to offset the costs to purchase equipment, furniture and fixtures. The project created approximately 37 new full time jobs with an estimated payroll of $220,000.
