Ohio Tavern News had the honor last month of presenting its 2014 “Permit Holder of the Year” award to Dick Allen of Columbus.

With the presentation at the Ohio Licensed Beverage Association’s annual convention, Allen became one of only three two-time recipients of the award, a testimony to the longevity of his contributions to the hospitality industry. While much has changed in the 15 years since being named OTN’s 1999 “Tavern Owner of the Year,” Allen has remained the same hard-working, successful businessman he has been during his many years in the industry.
