• a revised menu with a return to the restaurants’ most popular items, and a focus on streamlining operations to improve quality;
• a major marketing effort highlighting core favorites such as steaks, ribs and yeast rolls as well as the value Logan’s delivers to its customers;
• revised training programs with an emphasis on quality and hospitality.
Logan’s Roadhouse Inc. filed for reorganization bankruptcy in August. As part of the bankruptcy reorganization, Logan’s Roadhouse already has:
• restructured its balance to reduce its debt from approximately $400 million to just over $100 million, while significantly lowering its interest expenses; shut down 34 “underperforming” restaurants, leaving the chain with a portfolio of what it called “strong-performing restaurants;” and renegotiated leases and contracts resulting in over $4 million in annual savings.
Logan’s currently has 195 company-operated and 26 franchised restaurants in 20 states.
The chain closed its location at 2819 Centre Drive near Wright State University on Sept. 27. Employees were told high rent and the upcoming renegotiation of a lease was a factor in the decision to close the Beavercreek location.
But the following month, a spokesman for Logan’s vowed the Troy and Washington Twp. locations “will remain open serving diners.”
“Logan’s will remain a strong presence in Dayton,” Logan’s spokesman Jonathan Dedmon told this news outlet via email in mid-October.
