Why did Danny Boy's become Weazy's?
Danny Boy's changed its name because Ed Hoty, the owner of the Milan Road restaurant, recently ended his franchise partnership with Danny Boy's, a small chain with locations in Rocky River, Broadview Heights, Youngstown, Canton and Chesterland. Hoty said the split was amicable. “We enjoyed the relationship we had and they still support us,” Hoty said. “It was not a stressful situation.” The move gives him more control over the menu and business operations. The name "Weazy" is the nickname of Louisa Hoty, Ed's wife.
