Come fall, Medina residents will have a new place to play. When completed, the Foundry Social (333 Foundry St.) will be a 30,000-square-foot entertainment complex outfitted with a selection of games that will include duckpin bowling, billiards, bocce, pinball, classic arcade games and ping pong. That business will join Elyria-based Franklin Brewing and High Voltage Karting in the historic property. High Voltage owners Greg Cordray, Steve Madden, Brian Fontanella and Gene Whaley are the men behind the new project.

“We are excited to bring Foundry Social to Medina,” Cordray says. “The Medina community has embraced us and supported High Voltage Karting since day one, and we are proud to bring such an exciting entertainment concept to Medina.”



Also part of the Foundry Social plan is a full bar, kitchen and private event space, combining to create a “premier dining and entertainment spot,” according to Cordray.

At roughly 135,000 square feet, the old Foundry still will have room left over for future ventures.



“The city of Medina’s slogan is ‘Preserving the Past. Forging the Future,’ and the Foundry Social project is doing that – literally,” states Medina Mayor Dennis Hanwell.

Look for Foundry Social and Franklin Brewing to open around October.
