Buffet chain Country Cookin shutters all of its restaurants

The 13-unit chain, headquartered in Virginia, had operated since 1981.

The chain’s 20th annual Boorito promo will now hand out 500,000 BOGO entrees through its social media channels.

The food-and-games chain has reopened more than 70% of its stores and reported some same-store sales improvement in September.

The wing chain reported same-store sales up more than 25% for the latest quarter, according to preliminary financial results.

Expect the food-and-games chain to be more focused on tech and at-home experiences as it navigates the most challenging period in its history, CEC Entertainment’s CEO says.

The fast-casual chain, which saw double-digit same-store sales declines earlier in the pandemic, is reporting brighter Q3 numbers.

The fast-casual chain said the permanent shutters came as a result of “tough decisions because of current circumstances.”

New Technomic consumer data shows which restaurants are adhering to social distancing, personal protective equipment and more.

CEC Entertainment’s unsecured creditors say the company’s lenders are pushing a quick sale that would result in an artificially low price.
