Village of Roseville Grocery Store Market Analysis

The Kiln Market & Eatery Feasibility Study

The Voinovich School of Leadership & Public Affairs at Ohio University was contracted to prepare a market Feasibility Study to evaluate and profile the conditions of success for the combined grocery store, restaurant, and ice cream parlor concept for the Roseville market. This work was funded in part by the Village of Roseville and in part by the Economic Development Administration through its University Centers program whose mission includes delivery of venture development services to businesses in the 32 counties of Appalachian Ohio. The analysis was conducted by John Glazer, Senior Executive in Residence for Strategic Development and the Technical Director for the Voinovich School’s Social Enterprise Ecosystem project funded by the Appalachian Regional Commission. Mr. Glazer was assisted by Augustine Gyekye, Senior Graduate Student Researcher for the Social Enterprise Ecosystem and Master of Public Administration (MPA) candidate at the Voinovich School.
