Announced today, Books & Brews will open its next store at Hamilton Town Center.
A franchise location for the company, the store will be run by husband and wife team Stephen and Jordan Fox at 13230 Harrell Pkwy., Suite 100, where Noodles & Company was formerly located.
The Foxes said they fell in love with Books & Brews approximately five years ago when the first location at 9402 Uptown Dr., Suite 1400, Indianapolis, was first opened, becoming regular customers.
“At that time, (Books & Brews CEO) Jason (Wuerfel) was usually the only one working so we became fast pals,” Jordan said. “My husband Stephen and I have numerous years between us in the food and beverage industry (and) are so excited to leap into the world of owning and managing our own store.”
According to a statement from Books & Brews, the Noblesville store will be a family-friendly space with a variety of craft beers on tap in a fun, inviting environment. The menu will offer sandwiches, flatbreads, and appetizers, along with a full kids menu. The location will play host to a variety of adult and all-ages events.
Stephen is a manufacturing supervisor overseeing day-to-day operations of a custom steel fabrication and shop enjoys restoring his 1969 Mustang, playing guitar in a local ’90s rock band, riding his Harley, fishing, and beer. Jordan works with a downtown Indy steakhouse coordinating private events and encompassing the role of lead hostess. She also choreographs local musicals and occasionally performs in them. They are parents to 1 1/2-year-old, Layla Jean.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to add Stephen and Jordan to the Books & Brews team,” Wuerfel said. “Their new store is set up for success in a great location, and with their passion and drive, we look forward to seeing them grow it into a community gathering space for all in Noblesville.”
