An Unexpected Restaurant Now Closes in Georgia

An unexpected restaurant now closes in Georgia after being a longstanding location in the local area, sources confirm.

The Applebee’s branch in Tucker, Georgia, around 20 miles northeast of Atlanta, has been listed as permanently closed online.

This branch was a longstanding restaurant in the local area, per The US Sun.

It was situated in the Cofer Crossing mall, just off Lawrenceville Highway, which is home to stores including Kroger and Walmart.

The branch reportedly unexpectedly closed its doors on May 13, according to Tomorrow’s News Today – Atlanta.

Staff and diners were reportedly not made aware of the decision to shut down before last week.

This location has also been listed as “permanently closed” on Google Maps.

The chain has also not given a reason for the decision to shut this spot for good.

This spot was built in 1998 and took up around 5,000 square feet, according to DeKalb County documents obtained by Tomorrow’s News Today – Atlanta.

The future of this site hasn’t been confirmed.

This spot is thought to be a desirable dining or retail location as it is located in the Cofer Crossing mall’s premises but was independently owned.

Some locals took to Facebook to share their thoughts following the news.

“Very sad!” one commenter said.

“My husband and I ate at the location in Tucker last Sunday.

There were hardly any other customers.”

“Glad I was able to use my Applebees gift card the day before closing,” they added.

“I saw them taking the sign away Monday!” another person said.

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.

    Why is GA Governor Pic in the story? Must be a democratic editor who blames Applebee’s closing on him rather than their subpar food
