A 17-unit Southern family-dining company announced it will shutter all of its locations on Wednesday, citing the current business climate as the reason it’s ceasing operations.
Little Rock, Ark.-based Dixie Restaurants Inc., which operates the Dixie Cafe and Delta Cafe concepts, has been in business for more than 35 years. The company has units in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Tennessee.
“It’s a very difficult operating environment for full-service, family-oriented restaurants,” CEO Allan Roberts said in a statement. “We have seen declining sales combined with increasing costs that has made this difficult decision necessary.”
