Ruby Tuesday announced last week it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy which includes the closure of restaurants throughout the country.
Business Insider reported that the company has quietly closed locations around the country before the bankruptcy announcement.
“This announcement does not mean ‘Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday’. Today’s actions will allow us an opportunity to reposition the company for long-term stability as we recover from the unprecedented impact of COVID-19,” Shawn Lederman, Ruby Tuesday’s CEO, said in a release. “Our restructuring demonstrates a commitment to Ruby Tuesday’s future viability as we work to preserve thousands of team member jobs. Our guests can be assured that during the Chapter 11 process, we will continue to deliver welcoming service and provide a safe environment for guests and team members, while serving fresh, signature products that only Ruby Tuesday can offer. With this critical step in our transformation for long-term financial health – this is ‘Hello’, to a stronger Ruby Tuesday.”
