A representative for Bob Evans restaurants said in an email that the restaurant itself will continue to operate.

“The restaurant itself will continue to be owned and operated by Bob Evans Restaurants, LLC,” said Sara Rosenberg Bittorf, chief marketing officer and senior vice president for Bob Evans.

In recent years, Bob Evans has restructured its business and has been selling its restaurants. In May 2017, a trio of Dayton-area Bob Evans restaurants sold simultaneously for a total of $5.6 million.

At the time, Bob Evans Farms Inc. had divided its business by keeping its food production side and selling off its restaurant chain to private equity group Golden Gate Capital.
