Ruby Tuesday Closing 95 Restaurants – No Word If Pocatello Staying Open
If you've traveled through Pocatello during the dinner hour, odds are you have had dinner at Ruby Tuesday at some point. Thursday, Ruby Tuesday announced that they are closing 95 restaurants. The press release did not mention if Pocatello would be among them.
Here is a snippet of what Ruby Tuesday announced:
Ruby Tuesday recently completed a comprehensive review of its corporate-owned restaurant portfolio and determined that it was in the Company’s best interest to close approximately 95 underperforming restaurants. These locations will cease operations by September 2016.
"The decision to close restaurants is a difficult but necessary step as we take aggressive actions to strengthen our organization. Performance at each of these locations, despite the loyalty of valued guests and the efforts of our dedicated employees, was not meeting expectations. Full-time and part-time employees impacted by closures will be offered positions in nearby restaurants where possible.”
