O.N.E Bistro features a unique and inspiring “pay-as-you-can” model

February 6, 2012 by  

A new restaurant with a unique idea is scheduled to open in Miamisburg, just northwest of centerville, this month. O.N.E Bistro is based upon a “pay-as-you-can” model that was first conceived in Utah. In 2003, Denise Cerreta, owner of a sandwich shop in Salt Lake City, told a customer “just pay what you can.” From that incidence, a new concept in the restaurant business was born. Cerreta transformed her small sandwich shop into the One World Café and the idea resulted in the One World Everybody Eats Foundation. From Utah, the altruistic idea took off into a restaurant movement all over the world.

Owner Robert Adamson, a graduate of cincinnati State’s Culinary School, purchased the old Second Street Café at 110 S. Second Street in Miamisburg. Robert studied under John Kinsella, who is listed as one of the 12 master chefs in America, and has over 20 years of experience in the restaurant and catering business.

Any time new businesses are introduced to the area, local print companies in and around Centerville may be called upon for printing services. New businesses in the area often require such services as flyer printing, banner printing or poster printing to announce their grand opening to the public.

O.N.E Bistro is anticipated to open sometime around the middle of February. The café will be open Tuesday through Saturday 9 am to 2 pm. Adamson stated that later hours for dinner may be added eventually. He also hopes to use the third floor of the café to host private parties in the future. This new concept in the restaurant business works through volunteers, fundraising efforts and a whole lot of support from the community.
