O’Charley’s restaurant in Prattville closes its doors
A longtime restaurant in Prattville has closed its doors for good.
The O’Charley’s on Cobbs Ford Road has a sign in the door saying it has gone out of business.
It’s part of a Nashville-based chain that has been closing a string of locations recently.
A representative with the national chain released this statement to WAKA Action 8 News from CEO W. Craig Barber:
“It is always a difficult decision to close a store but based on a variety of industry challenges and the macro-economic environment over the last few years, we closed the O’Charley’s location as of September 17.
We sincerely appreciate our loyal guests who have visited us at this location while also being deeply grateful for the outstanding work of our operating team.
We encourage our customers to visit us at any of our other restaurants across the Southeast, including several in Alabama.”
According to the “Restaurant Business” website, O’Charley’s closed 18 restaurants in one day last month and 33 others earlier this year, in order to concentrate on the 90 or so that it has left.
With the Prattville restaurant closing, O’Charley’s has four locations remaining in Alabama: Decatur, Fultondale, Daphne and Foley.
