Dexter's third Subway opened recently in the Dexter Plaza, but it's the town's first not inside a gas station. Manager Megan Fix says the franchise is owned by Shashi Patel, who also owns the downtown Subway inside the BP station. (The third is in the Pilot station at Baker Road and I-94.)
Subway, 7050 Dexter-Ann Arbor Rd., Ste. 600, 253-2525. Mon.-Fri. 7 a.m.-10 p.m., Sat. 8 a.m.-10 p.m., Sun. 9 a.m.-8 p.m. www.subway.com
The tiny Jake's BBQ Shack, which opened in June, closed in late July: "We tried to hang on till at least Dexter Daze, but I think the whole town went out on vacation this year," wrote owner Bart Aniolczyk on Jake's Facebook page. Aniolczyk's first restaurant on the spot, Jake's Place, also failed to attract many customers and closed about six months after opening. Aniolczyk didn't return phone calls.
