Spokane Valley Perkins Closes

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE RELEASE FROM NORTHWEST HOSPITALITY LLC. Nancy McDaniel, President of Northwest Hospitality LLC, which is the local management company that currently operates 5 Perkins® franchise restaurants, announced the closure of Argonne Family Restaurant, Inc. dba Perkins® Family Restaurant & Bakery, located at East 9019 Mission Avenue, Spokane.  This restaurant franchise has been owned by 4 local investors for the past 15 years and was originally opened in 1990.

Citing a difficult economy McDaniel stated, "the franchise agreement for this location expired and a decision was made that it was not financially feasible to renew the franchise at this location.  This will allow us to focus our resources on other locations in the nearby area."  Employees of the restaurant, one full time manager and 13 part time employees were notified of the closure during a meeting at the end of their shift earlier in the day.  Employees will receive their paychecks on Monday, June 27th for full compensation for all hours worked, and are invited to apply at other Perkins restaurants, a complete listing of which can be found at: http://www.perkinsrestaurants.com/locations

In making the announcement, McDaniel stated, "despite the decision not to renew the Spokane Valley franchise location,  we look forward to serving Perkins® guests at our other locations, while continuing to invest in and actively support the Spokane, Ritzville and Coeur D'Alene communities.  We employ 145 people in these three communities that are counting on us to make decisions to protect the long term viability of the local restaurants we manage.  We expect to continue activities such as our Dine and Donate program which has been met with great enthusiasm and benefits both our guests and local charities."
