Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - First Perkins and now Bakers Square.

The two Rochester Perkins restaurants recently closed their doors without warning and now the two Bakers Square sites have shut down, apparently for good.

Signs on the front doors of the stores Sunday read: “This Bakers Square Location is Permanently Closed. Thank you for being our guest.”

Like the Perkins closing, there was no earlier announcement.

The last known owner and operator of the two Rochester stores was American Blue Ribbon Holdings, based in Nashville. It describes itself as “a diversified food services company operating four family and casual dining restaurant groups in the United States. These include O’Charley’s, Ninety Nine Restaurant and Pub, Village Inn and Bakers Square. “

The two Rochester stores are located near Apache Mall and the 37th St NW/Highway 52 interchange.
