Ryba’s at Navy Pier in ChicagoJanuary 3, 2015
Todd Callewaert, who recently signed a 10-year lease to operate the venue’s Starbucks, owns Ryba’s Fudge Shop, a Navy Pier tenant since 1996. He pitched the shop, an offshoot of his store in Mackinac Island, Mich., to Navy Pier last year for renewal. Like many of the other roughly 250 restaurant groups that received requests for proposals for the new food court, though, he’s still waiting to hear back. “It’s a fluid situation,” he says.
