KUSA - Three of 9 Country Buffet locations in Colorado abruptly closed their doors on Thursday.
The locations affected include
the Aurora location (1026 South Sable Boulevard), the Lone Tree location ( 7475 Park Meadows Drive) and the Fort Collins location ( 118 West Troutman Parkway). All of the other locations remain open.
The parent company of Country Buffet released the following statement:
Ovation Brands was acquired by Food Management Partners in August 2015. Since that time, we have continued to execute former management’s operating plan to stabilize and enhance the performance of the company. However, based on ongoing assessments of individual restaurants, it is necessary to shutter locations for the continued viability of the brands and our employees.
In all 74 underperforming Old Country Buffet, Hometown Buffet, Ryan’s, Fire Mountain and Country Buffet restaurants throughout the United States closed permanently on February 4.
Ovation Brands says employees of the closed locations will be given the opportunity to apply for positions at its other locations.
