Red Lobster restaurant closes permanently in Roanoke after more than four decades
Roanoke, Virginia – The Red Lobster restaurant that was located on Franklin Boulevard in Roanoke shut down over the weekend, and it seems that this closure is permanent.
“After more than 43 years of being part of the Roanoke community, we have made the incredibly difficult decision to close our restaurant at 3529 Franklin Road, SW. The lease is ending and we were unable to reach an agreement with our landlord. We understand the impact this situation has on our guests as well as our employees’ ability to work. We have provided transfer options for our team members at this location,” the company spokesperson said.
The company, with headquarters in Orlando, Florida, has hundreds of locations all over the world.
