As of today, Ruby Tuesday has closed all of its Truffles Grill locations, including the one in Winter Park Village. Management was informed of the decision Sunday night, and at 10 a.m. today were planning to meet with staff members to inform them that they would receive two weeks’ termination pay. Some staffers will be offered positions at Ruby Tuesday locations.
Truffles Cafe, the original restaurant in Hilton Head, S.C., will remain open. Outside of South Carolina, the restaurants were branded Truffles Grill. Numerous locations were planned for expanding the brand, but only restaurants in Atlanta and here had opened outside the state. According to a manager at Truffles Grill, the company is refocusing its efforts on its main concept, Ruby Tuesday.
It’s unclear if anything else will open in the space at Winter Park Village, which is near the Chamberlin’s market.
More details as they become available.
