No they don't have a clue. This is why people like rankin shouldn't be able to own all these businesses. He doesn't care about them because if he did he'd make sure they were being taken care of. He just uses them for status and his own personal whore house. Preying on the next young girl to try to get his pee fix. People say he's great for the community. I call bs on that because every business he owns is awful and still going downhill. Pretty frustrating for someone like myself who'd give my right nut for my own restaurant

I just went to Tuscan Table this past week. I have not been there in a long time. It was the worst lunch ever!!! I ended up getting up and leaving, without eating my lunch... I have no reason to lie, I just want everyone to know. I was seated right where they cook, very dirty looking, and my food was horrible! It was not even cooked all the way. My husband and I will never go back there. Who ever owns it really needs to get in there and do something...

The sad part is he's in there all the time! Nobody cares including owners and mangmt. They couldn't keep the good cooks they had in there at one point because nobody can cash their checks. Because nobody knows what the hell they're doing

All I know is that both places are filthy and so are a lot of the people. Most of the food is crap because they use shortcuts and none of them know how to run a business or they'd have more customers. Tuscan is never busy. Hooks sometimes still, somehow.

<quoted text>. Most of what you say is true. However the sauce isn't canned, the tomatoes are. Many other ingredients are added such as basil, oregano, garlic, onions, red wine,etc. the sauce then cooks for several hours before its ready. All this I know because I had to do it. But in total agreement about the places being awful. From the management to most of the people who work there. Rankin uses it as his own personal restaurant and whore house. Leasing young girls cars and taking them on dates lol. And he can't even make sure the money gets in the bank. Pretty fd up
I've heard the exact same story numerous times.

If you want to know about John Rankin just go meet him. He's always out and about and a really friendly guy and has no shred of self-richeousness. And I don't understand why anyone would hate someone who gives so much to his community. The food at Tuscan and J.R.Hooks is legit. Go try it and see for yourself...You'll likely see John there if you want to meet the real guy. As for the drug addict thing, there are some employees there who had made mistakes in the past and have changed their lives. A very difficult thing to do and have suffered dearly and John Rankin gave them a second chance. Comments like that really run deep in those people and hurt them. Sometimes people deserve and earn a second chance and to most employers those people are just a job application. To John these are people and he helps them EARN this second chance. Tell that to McDonalds.

He has never given anything to this community but a healthy dose of his vanity. Isn't it true that he owns a significant share of a factory up in Columbus called CSI? That's how he could "give back", open up a damn factory, not another eatery to entertain his female chunks.
Sorry

. You're absolutely right, that he seems very pleasant when you speak to him. That's all you're right about though. I've met the real guy, and used to work there. I didn't say John is an idiot, he's actually very intelligent guy. But he doesn't give a crap about his businesses or they wouldn't be as awful and filthy as they are. All he does is get buddy buddy with the girls so he can try to bang them. And if you read previous posts, I'm pretty sure that everyone just said that the food blows lol. And it does only because the right people don't care.
Sorry

'Come_see_for_you rself' is clearly one of Rankin's pee buddies. The man disgusts me, a real genuine sc*mbag that fits right into the community.

I'm a nobody, a virtual zero, but if I had any power he'd be kicked out of this town in a heartbeat. He's a cancer on this town, and if anyone on Topix disagrees you're clearly some fat chick that gets her bills paid off along with a management position.
Yep

well " see for yourself" I believe the verdict is in and most people know he's a low life and his places blow harder than he does. So you might want to dislodge yourself from his cavernous anal cavity.

When his help gets paid they can't cash the check yet there's no money in bank to pay them until later. He closed the Circleville Cinema up been here for years he destroyed that to. There nothing left in this town. Rankin needs to leave this town......

I've ate there once and that's all I needed before I went home and about died from food poisoning. He also had a waitress that was working that looked like she was so strung out that maybe that's what made me sick. I also know that she was just released from prison for selling drugs in town , good way to run a business dumb a$$!!!
