LESS THAN A WEEK AGO, Memphis’ GrubHub was shuttered.
Now, Memphis restaurants are closing.
Eater reported on Tuesday that Grub Hub is closing, as the restaurant’s owner, Bill Simmons, has left the company.
The site was shut down on March 29, a few days after Simmons announced that he was stepping down from the company he founded.
The GrubHQ blog says the closure was a result of a “management restructuring” that was announced last year.
The blog did not provide any further details about the reason for the closure.
Memphis has been struggling with an influx of new restaurants.
It was the second time this year that Memphis had to close a GrubHUB location, and the restaurant closed in April after a two-month run.
Simmons, who was also the CEO of GrubHop, announced last month that he had bought a 50 percent stake in the company that owns GrubHC, and was moving his business operations to a new location.
“GrubHub is a great company with great products, great customers, and a great community,” he said.
“I have spent a lot of time here and I think GrubHour has a lot to offer the Memphis community.”
He said the new location will be located at 618 S. Custer St., and that he plans to reopen the Memphis GrubCenter on Sunday, March 31.
The Memphis GrubbHub website states that it will reopen on April 4.
It will have more than 25,000 square feet of dining space, plus a “dinner bar” and bar area, and two additional outdoor areas.
The restaurant will be open on Saturdays and Sundays.
