Owensboro Shoney's closing by week's end

Posted: Updated:

If you want to eat at Shoney's in Owensboro, you better do so soon.

The owner of Owensboro Shoney's restaurant on Frederica Street says he is closing the doors this Friday.

Owner Ed Bay says he is in litigation with the parent company and can't afford the legal costs. 

We've also heard reports that the Shoney's on U.S. 41-North in Henderson will close on Sunday afternoon as well.

A statement from Shoney's North America, LLC says the company does not comment on pending litigation, but Shoney's is developing plans to keep the restaurants open, under new management and to retain Shoney's team members.
