A Famous Restaurant Now Closes in Texas After Several Shutdowns

A famous restaurant now closes in Texas after several shutdowns occurred earlier this year, with the decisions being ‘difficult’.

Hooters has abruptly closed one of its locations after previously closing 40 restaurant.

The establishment, located in Wichita Falls, Texas, slammed its doors shut on June 23, reports The-Sun.

On Google, the restaurant is listed as permanently closed.

“Like many restaurants under pressure from current market conditions, Hooters has made the difficult decision to close a select number of underperforming stores,” the chain told Texoma in a statement.

“Ensuring the well-being of our staff is our priority in these rare instances.

With new Hooters restaurants opening domestically and internationally, new Hooters frozen products launching at grocery stores, and the Hooters footprint expanding into new markets with both company and franchise locations, this brand of 41 years remains highly resilient and relevant.

We look forward to continuing to serve our guests at home, on the go and at our restaurants here in the U.S. and around the globe.”

The closure comes after the chain shuttered its location in Warwick, Rhode Island – around eight miles from the state capital Providence.

A note has been left on one of the restaurant’s windows informing customers about the closure, per The Providence Journal.

The shutdown has been blamed on the collapse of the Washington Bridge.

The closure comes just months after the chain’s restaurant in Lafayette, Louisiana, shuttered after 25 years.

And a candlelit vigil was held to mourn the shuttering of a Hooters restaurant in Charleston, West Virginia, in February, per The Washington Post.

The slew of closures joins dozens of other businesses across the country that are shutting down.

An unexpected restaurant now abruptly closes 7 locations in one state after revealing plans to shutter a total of 36.

TGI Fridays is closing a total of seven restaurants in one state as part of the company’s ongoing growth strategy.

This comes after the chain abruptly closed 36 locations across 12 states in at the beginning of the year, per The-Sun.

The restaurant chain will pull the plug on seven locations across the state of New Jersey in the coming weeks.

Today, Fridays will welcome in famished diners at its location in Brick for the final time.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Weldon Spangler, CEO of TGI Fridays earlier this week.

“We are at the helm of a pivotal moment that will allow us to explore boundless advancement, expansion, and innovation to keep delivering ‘That Fridays Feeling’ that our fans know and love.”

Before the closures, TGI Fridays had about 270 US locations, according to the company’s website.

“As part of the store closures, TGI Fridays is offering more than 1,000 transfer opportunities, which represents over 80% of total impacted employees,” the company previously said in a statement.

“Our top priority has always been delivering a superior experience for each and every TGI Fridays guest, and we’ve identified opportunities to optimize and streamline our operations to ensure we are best positioned to meet – and exceed – on that brand promise,” said Ray Risley, US president and chief operating officer, in the release.

Eight other locations were sold to former CEO Ray Blanchette, a longtime stakeholder who will acquire the previously corporate-owned restaurants.

The sale comes as major changes have been made to the brand’s leadership, including the news of Weldon Spangler being made CEO.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Spangler in a statement.
