Wolverine Grill in Ypsilanti listed for sale after closing last month
The Wolverine Grill, a longtime Ypsilanti restaurant on West Michigan Avenue, closed its doors on Oct. 19, and now the restaurant is listed for sale.
Both the 5,000-square-foot building and the restaurant are listed with Tom Stachler of Real Estate One for $189,000.

There are two apartments and an office above the restaurant, which is located at 228 W. Michigan Ave.
The listing markets the property as a “great opportunity” to purchase income property and own a business.
The Wolverine has been located on West Michigan Avenue since the 1930s. Greg Batianis has owned the restaurant since 1963.
Batianis retired in 2008, and his daughter, Debbie, has been operating the restaurant. Due to health complications, the family had to close the business on Oct. 19, Stachler said.
“It's temporarily closed until we can find someone else to take over the business,” he said.
Stachler said someone can purchase just the restaurant, or the building as well.
He said he’s been receiving interest in the property, and the goal is to reopen the restaurant within the next 30 days.
“We’ve had a good deal of interest from other folks that either are in the restaurant business or would like to get into the restaurant business,” he said. “The discussions are ongoing with a few interested parties.”
