ORANGE VILLAGE, Ohio (WJW) — Bahama Breeze has permanently closed its Orange Village location, the company confirmed to FOX 8 News Tuesday.
Our FOX 8 crew took a photo of a sign outside the restaurant that reads, “Beginning May 4th, 2020, this location is permanently closed. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
Darden, the company that owns Bahama Breeze, gave FOX 8 the following statement on Tuesday:
“Closing this restaurant is a difficult business decision, and it’s one we made very carefully and thoughtfully. While this decision is not a reflection of the quality of our team members’ work, we could no longer justify continuing to operate this location given historical sales trends. We continually evaluate the performance of all of our restaurant locations, and this decision was made as part of that process. Unfortunately, from time-to-time we have to close restaurants.”
If you have a Bahama Breeze gift card, the company said you can use that at the other restaurants Darden owns including Olive Garden and LongHorn Steakhouse.
