The New York Post reports that the company behind the Logan's restaurant business - CraftWorks Holdings filled for bankruptcy last month. Then this week they terminated almost all of their 18,000 employees, along with their benefits. They closed all of their 261 locations in response to Covid-19 regulations.

The laid off employees were informed late yesterday that the move would be permanent. Craftworks owns Logan’s here, but they are also in other places with other brands. Those restaurants include Old Chicago, Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery, Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant Group and ChopHouse.

Texas Road House is set to open across the street, and that couldn't have been a good thing for Logan's.
