Yellow Springs restaurant shuts down after nearly decade-long run

A Yellow Springs restaurant that served customers for nearly a decade has shut its doors for good as its owner prepares for another restaurant venture.

Williams Eatery at 101 Corry St. closed two days before Christmas, founder Lawren Williams told this news outlet. The restaurant lasted nearly 10 years. Williams said diminishing sales, especially during the winter months, and an expiring lease were the primary factors in his decision to close.

“I am very thankful for all of the people who came out to eat at our restaurant over the years,” Williams said.
