Another Popular Restaurant Now Gets Hit By An Unexpected Closure

Another popular restaurant now gets hit by an unexpected closure, which is set to take place in only a matter of days.

Chili’s has announced that another one of its popular restaurants will shut its doors permanently in just a few days.

2024 has been a difficult new year for Chili’s, the nationwide chain best known for good deals on appetizers and comfort food, reports The-Sun.

Last week, Chili’s broke the news that a second location will be shutting down in just days.

Chili’s fans in Fort Wayne, Indiana, will no longer be able to enjoy its free chips and salsa or famous fried chicken after February 20, according to CBS affiliate WANE.

The address of the Chili’s that will be closing is 317 E Coliseum Boulevard, Kristen Bennett, Chili’s Director of Corporate Communications, confirmed to local reporters.

It comes shortly after the company announced that its Charlotte, North Carolina location was closing last month.

Details as to why the Fort Wayne spot is getting shut down have not been made public.

In a thread posted to the Reddit community r/FortWayne, several residents shared theories as to why the restaurant will no longer be around.

Locals in Fort Wayne say the location had suffered from poor service and a lack of clientele.

“In the last 10+ years I haven’t seen more than a handful of cars in the parking lot,” one person commented.

“Not surprised, went there once a couple years ago, terrible service the servers and waitresses were just on their phones the entire time. Barely got refills, food and service was terrible,” another noted.

“Last few times I went recently, it was epically bad service (dropping trays of food, forgetting to put in entire meals, etc),” a third agreed.

Another popular restaurant now declares an unexpected bankruptcy after closing several chains in Chicago, Arizona, and California.

Etta Collective, a small chain that operates multiple concepts in Chicago, Arizona and Los Angeles has closed several restaurants and has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, reports TheStreet.

The chain closed its namesake restaurant in Los Angeles last year and abruptly shut down a Chicago-area restaurant, Sophie’s, earlier this year.

Now, after defaulting on a $2.5 million loan, the company’s owner, restaurateur David Pisor, has officially made the bankruptcy filing.

Pisor’s Etta collective runs a number of different concepts including its namesake restaurants, a bakery cafe, Alston House, a high-end steakhouse, and Kari, an upscale sushi concept.

The chain also has Marilyn’s, a planned concept that has not opened.

Pisor has said that the bankruptcy filing was made in order to help the company continue to operate.

“We have made a proactive decision to commence this strategic reorganization process with the cooperation of our lender, who has agreed to work with us so that we can come out of this process even stronger than before,” Restaurant Business reported.

The bankruptcy process could include a sale of the brand as the investor John Leahy has emerged as a bidder for the company’s assets.

“Our aim is to best position the Etta brand for future success,” Pisor said in a statement.

“By filing for protection under Chapter 11, we will be able to restructure our financial position while continuing our daily operations and keeping our locations open. 

As has already happened in our Scottsdale location, we predict that we will emerge stronger both operationally and financially.”
