Houlihan’s on Colonial Closing; Miller’s Ale House Opening

Written By Scott Joseph On July 20, 2015

HoulihanThe Houlihan’s restaurant at Colonial Plaza on Highway 50 in Orlando will close on Sunday. A Miller’s Ale House will take its place.

According to a manager at the restaurant — who at first kept arguing with me that I was supposed to have been there Monday morning for my 9:30 shift — all approximately 30 employees have been told their jobs will be ending. (The guy who didn’t show up for work today might not make it until Sunday.)

The casual-dining chain, which is privately owned by Houlihan’s Restaurants, Inc., has fewer than 100 restaurants nationwide. According to Nation’s Restaurant News, the company had been seeking a sale.

Miller’s Ale House is a Jupiter,Florida, based chain with 14 locations in the Orlando area. The restaurants have a sports bar decor and matching menu. A spokesman reached in the Orlando office could not give any details about the timing for the new location.
