Bob Evans shuts down 27 restaurants, including 3 in Indiana
NEW ALBANY, Ohio – Bob Evans announced Monday that it will close a total of 27 locations, including three restaurants in Indiana.
The majority of those closures have already happened. Six leased locations are expected to close during the 2017 fiscal year. The following Indiana locations were affected by the move:
- Greenwood: 91 Byrd Way
- Indianapolis: 6330 W. 71st Street
- New Castle: 111 B S. Memorial Dr.
President and CEO Saed Mohseni released a statement about the closures:
“Decisions to close restaurant locations are always difficult. Performance at each of these locations, despite the loyalty of valued guests and the efforts of our dedicated employees, was not meeting expectations. Employees impacted by closures have been offered positions in nearby restaurants where possible. In cases where relocation is not possible, severance benefits will be offered to full-time and part-time employees.”
According to an SEC filing, the closures affected 1,100 workers. Employees were being offered positions in nearby restaurants when possible, the company said. Workers who couldn’t be relocated to another Bob Evans would be offered termination benefits.
The chain described the restaurants as underperforming, citing lagging sales for the closures. In addition to the three Indiana locations, the company closed five in Missouri, and two each in Kentucky and Ohio.
