Shoney’s Restaurants in Owensboro and Henderson Closing Their Doors on Sunday [LISTENER COMMENTS]
Longtime Owensboro and Henderson restaurants, Shoney's, will be shutting their doors on Sunday.
The owner of both restaurants, Ed Bay, filed a lawsuit in 2010 against Shoney's North America for breaching their license agreement. The ongoing lawsuit has cost Bay so much that he can no longer afford to keep the doors open at either location.
There has been mixed emotions about the buffet closing. When we initially heard about the closing, we posted to Facebook and several people expressed both disappointment and excitement.
We did notice that most of the commenters were sad to hear of the longtime Western Kentucky's restaurants' closing. See some of the comments below and feel free to leave your own.
Patty Edge Neace We'll doesn't that suck! The had, as far as I'm concerned, one of the best breakfast bars in town. So sad to see them close.
