Local BBQ Restaurant Closes After One Year
Restaurants seem to close up shop earlier and earlier these days. Whether not enough financial prep was put into planning, or banks and investors have shorter leashes and pull the plug on the businesses sooner than ever before, greater Phoenix has seen its share of restaurants shut down for good long before ever making it to their two-year anniversaries. One local BBQ restaurant barely made it past one year before shutting their doors for good.
Local Restaurant Chain Closes 3rd Location in as Many Weeks
Generally speaking, when restaurant brands perform well they tend to expand. And yet, for one reason or another, there are times when brands decide to contract, instead of open up new locations. For one particular chain, which is about as Tucson as a restaurant brand can get, sales have continued on an upward trajectory for years, and yet, despite this, the local chain has closed up three local restaurants, with the possibility of more to come.
Local Restaurant Closes After Just 8 Months
All good things come to an end. Sometimes that end is far sooner than anyone imagined. While every business opens with plans on lasting for generations, that, sadly, isn’t generally the case. Rapid closures are even more a common occurrence when dealing with the restaurant industry, as these margins are usually razor thin, and owners are forced to deal with not turning a profit, often for the first several years. In the modern climate, it’s far more difficult for small, family-owned businesses to land sizeable loans to help sustain them through those first few years, which means if the business fails to hit the track running, it may close earlier than expected. That is exactly what happened to one local Tucson restaurant, which has now closed its doors less than a year after opening.

Popular Restaurant Forced to Close Due To Landlord Rent Surge
The butting of heads between tenants and landlords is nothing new. It’s an issue about as old as renting out properties. However, while this issue typically bubbles up when it comes to residential locations, there has been a surge in commercial real estate of late. Landlords are seeking to increase rent to the point many current tenants are unable to make payments to stay profitable. Some business types can absorb the increase, but others, specifically those in the hospitality business, can’t simply accept a surge in potentially thousands of dollars, as any kind of increase would be forced onto customers. For one Phoenix-area restaurant, the issue came to a head, resulting in the closure of a business less than a month after it opened.
Local BBQ Restaurant Closes After 33 Years
Whether you’re a fan of brisket, pulled pork, or a slow-smoked rack of ribs, there’s truly nothing like expertly grilled meat. From the vinegary tang of BBQ sauce on the pork to the crispy, fall-off-the-bone bark of ribs cooked low and slow, it is a food that is consumed with just as much passion as it is made. In greater Phoenix, there are a number of exceptional BBQ locations to enjoy a delicious meal, but starting this week there is one less spot, as a long-time Valley favorite has closed its doors after more than three decades.
Local Restaurant Forced Closed by Surging Rent
Surging rental costs have increased throughout the Valley, and it isn’t only affecting residents. The increase in rent for local businesses is also something that is affecting not only owners but employees as well. Countless businesses have been forced to close up shop due to the steadily increasing rental prices, and now, it has claimed another establishment, this time in the form of a restaurant and cafe that has called Phoenix home for five years.
Local Restaurant, Owned By James Beard Award Winner, is Closing
The more things change, the more things stay the same. That, for some local Tucson food lovers, maybe the way of viewing the announced closure of a popular restaurant in the heart of the city. The restaurant will change, evolve, and take on a new identity, but in some ways, things will stay the same, as the new location’s ownership will remain the same. Retooling and rebranding a restaurant can sometimes prove necessary (as well as ideal if there are tax incentives attached to it). Regardless, the locally-owned destination will officially call it quits in just a few short days.
Popular Local Restaurant Has Closed
Every restaurant starts as a dream. Some open as the culmination of a lifelong dream, while other times individuals have family recipes they want to share with the world. Restaurants are a labor of love, as they are often difficult to run, with countless variables constantly changing all the time. It is what makes running such an establishment both exciting and terrifying. It is also why so many restaurants end up failing in the end. One local restaurant, which had a three-year run, has officially called it quits, which means locals will lose not only a favorite food and watering hole but a local music venue as well.

Local Restaurant Closes, Replaced Immediately By Similar Restaurant
Normally, when one business closes up shop, it isn’t immediately replaced by the exact same kind of business. Now, granted, the newly vacant space is set up almost perfectly for the new establishment, which helps save on renovations, but still, there’s typically a reason why the original business failed, and location almost always plays a role in it. And yet, from time to time, especially in the restaurant industry, you will see a failed restaurant exit and a near identical restaurant move in. That is exactly what has happened in Chandler, with owners betting on themselves and that they will have better luck than their predecessors.
Local Restaurant Closes After 40 Years
As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. It is always a sad day when a favorite restaurant closes up shop. The longer a restaurant is with us, the more invulnerable it seems. If the restaurant makes it past the five-year or even the ten-year mark, it often feels as if that restaurant will be around forever. But as the restaurant industry has demonstrated over the past several years, things change, often rapidly, and the strongest of businesses can close up shop with little to no warning. That is exactly what happened to one Phoenix establishment that has been serving the community for 40 years.
Local Restaurant Closing After 15 Years
When searching for high-end restaurants, often one of the best starting points is at high-end hotels. These included restaurants must maintain a level of service other restaurants are not necessarily beholden to. If the restaurant provides lackluster service or food it reflects poorly on the hotel, in which case the hotel might choose to separate itself from the restaurant. But on the flip side, a restaurant that does uphold these elevated requirements, they are gifted continued business from guests at the hotel. It is a symbiotic relationship. One particular restaurant in Scottsdale has managed to remain in business and work with a local hotel for 15 years, although it has now decided to call it quits at the end of July.
Local Chinese Restaurant Has Closed
Folks on the north side of Tucson, as well as those who call Oro Valley home, have seen a number of new restaurants pop up over the last few years. Many of the most popular restaurants in Tucson proper have opened satellite locations in Oro Valley, making it easier for residents of the area to enjoy their favorite foods without driving for 45 minutes. This has made running a restaurant right at the Tucson and Oro Valley border a goldmine for many establishments. However, rent hikes and surging property costs can hinder some growth, and it seems this is the cause of one area restaurant deciding to close up shop, without much warning.
Longtime Favorite Pizza Restaurant Has Closed
Pizza restaurants, once established, have a way of elbowing out the competition and securing their position in the local culinary world for decades. Why? Well, just about everyone loves a good slice of pizza, and when they discover a favorite, it’s hard to ever order pizza from anywhere else. That is just one of the reasons why it is so surprising a local Tucson establishment has closed.
Popular Restaurant Forced to Close After Building is Sold
There are fads in the restaurant industry that, typically, burn out. Some last longer than clothes, but, ultimately, some styles of restaurants that once seemed cool and hip fail to draw the patrons that once flocked to their doors. In metro Phoenix, a once prominent restaurant, open for nearly a decade, has felt this sting. And yet, not all of it was due to a lack of interest, but part of the closure was completely out of its hands.
Local Restaurant Forced Closed, Stopped Paying Rent
In the immortal words of Freddy Mercury, “Another one bites the dust.” At least that’s the case here in Tucson with the restaurant community. The summer months are not kind, as fewer locals go out, students have not returned, and the snowbirds haven’t yet left their Midwest and Northeastern nests. There have been numerous closures so far this summer, and the trend continues, this time with a closure that came rather suddenly.

Local Restaurant Closes, Is Sold
As Han Solo once said, “Never tell me the odds.” That is a motto most restaurant owners follow, as statistics universally indicate the majority of restaurants not only fail but fail quickly. In fact, according to CNBC, around 60 percent of all new restaurants fail within the first year. This number jumps to 80 percent when expanding out to five years. This means just 20 percent of restaurants make it past their five-year birthday. For one local restaurant, all of the statistics proved true, as it not only folded before it hit five years, but the establishment is now officially sold as well.
