List of Ruby Tuesday Restaurants Closing

Does someone have a list of restaurants that will be closing in 2016 and 2017? I hear that there is a plan to consolidate and close some restaurants, also, obviously, if you are not making money there will be no reason for your restaurant to continue operating. For now, there are just rumors, but look what is happening to our competitors, they are closing restaurants left and right.

North Olmsted, Ohio also closed (apparently in September). They were one of very few remaining places on our ever shrinking go-to family casual (prior departed include Friendly's (who closed all Ohio restaurants), Lone Star, Max & Erma's, and Pondarossa (also closed all Ohio locations).

If you don't see the trend here, these are all restaurants that offered a good family value and worked off the model that if the food was fairly priced to bring people in the door, then you would buy their overpriced "add on's"... in the case of Friendly's, it was ice cream... for Lone Star it was beer, Pondarossa it was a $25 steak dinner to eat after gorging on the buffet, which included wings and tacos. In each case the problem was not that they actually lost money, but that somewhere up the corporate chain, somebody above the store level decided that they needed more money. In the case of Friendly's, they wanted to charge franchisees for a mandatory "refresh"... which, from having seen what it looks like in neighbouring NY, basically tried to turn them into Steak & Shake. In the case of Ohio's Pondarossas, it was the IRS. From the press releases, it sounds like Ruby Tuesday's equity holders were behind this one.

Ruby Tuesday location in Anniston, Alabama closed as of end of business Monday December 3, 2018. The location was likely about 20 years old. Store manager had no comment to the local daily newspaper nor did the corporate office. The location had possibly had declining sales due to the relocation of the route of U.S. 431 which it faced.

Every one of their restaurants that I have visited served me a lesser quality hamburger when I have ordered the "Prime Burger". When you go to a restaurant there should never be different qualities of the same thing on the menu. That is a recipe for business failure. Oh - they won't know the difference.

Oh - yes they will.

So far Dothan, Alabama has closed. So if this store closed, Enterprise, Alabama and Maryanna, Florida will be next. Dothan city population is bigger than these two cities that has this resturant and they're right next cities over to each other.

You have lost customers with your salad bar changes. First not a regular side. Than you brag you have added items on salad bar when you eliminated the apple salad. Now you eliminate thousand island dressing. What next? We won't be back.

I do not think anyone has that list. Dayton Daily News reported that they will not be closing stores in Dayton, that's in my area and that's good - my sister in law works there and it'd be bad if she was affected.

There is a site that tracks store closings and they have notes on some Ruby locations, both closing and both staying open, that's the most info I was able to find - see it here https://www.thestoreclosing.com/c/ruby-tuesday
