Flyboy’s Deli 5th Anniversary Celebration!

Steve Crandall, a retired Air Force Colonel, and Eunice Kim, with 10 years of deli experience in Maryland and Washington D.C., combined their passions to bring Dayton a unique deli experience. Their first venture, Flyboys Deli, features three focus areas: the first floor of Flyboys Deli evokes a New York-style deli, the second floor, especially the mural, celebrate Dayton’s 110 years of aviation heritage and its rich history as a cradle of invention. And from the rooftop deck you can watch the planes soar across the sky as they celebrate Dayton’s heritage- flight.
Expect sandwich specials, complimentary treats, and opportunities to win a Flyboys Deli gift basket! There are also raffle drawings that will go on from 1- 5pm with five winners being drawn. Prizes include:

Flyboy’s Deli Beavercreek Grand Opening!
And then at 5pm tonight the 2nd location at The Mall at Fairfield Commons opens it doors to a restaurant that will be filled with tributes to the servicemen and women of America. In addition, Flyboys is adding a large outdoor patio, the Frequent Flyer Hall, the Flyboy’s Traveler, a banquet hall and a conference room! And unlike the Oakwood location, the Beavercreek restaurant will have full liquor service.
There will also be some new menu items that take a twist on classic Korean dishes created by owner Eunice Kim. Each week, Flyboy’s will celebrate a different city’s cuisine by serving their best dishes, and will be offering “rides” through each city on their flight simulator to truly experience the essence and diversity of cities around the world.
The celebration kicks off at 5pm with live music from Flow & The Flyovers, a band made up of retired Air Force personnel. Their will be door prizes for the first 55 guests, with raffle drawings at 7 & 9pm, with five winners for each drawing. Also be on the lookout for social media contests and trivia as well! Winners will receive a pint glass or mug and keychain. In addition, 20% of all proceeds tonight will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association and Fisher House.
Representative Rick Perales, of Ohio’s 73rd District congratulates owners Eunice Kim and Steve Crandall, a retired Air Force colonel, at a soft opening event held yesterday at the new The 7,400-square-foot eatery, which is located outside of the main entrance to the Mall at Fairfield Commons.
Like the original location, the new club will also feature an Aces Club. A Flyboys Ace is based on a flying ace in aviation – five kills and you become a flying ace! For Flyboys it’s Five Wednesday visits in purchasing their rotating selections of beer and you become a ‘Flyboy Ace’ with your name displayed on the board above the bar. After 41 visits to Flyboys on Wednesday nights, you are recognized as a ‘Flyboys Ace of Aces’. Flyboys Deli will then award our Ace of Aces with an engraved keepsake.
