Long John Silver’s closes Dayton area location

Long John Silver’s located at 785 W. Central Ave. in Springboro is permanently closed after serving the community since 1977, a spokesperson for Long John Silver’s confirmed.

“Closing a restaurant is never an easy decision for our company,” the spokesperson said. “Since LJS is a mostly franchise owned and operated brand, franchise owners can choose to close their location for a variety of reasons. We are thankful for the guests and crew members who sailed with us over the years.”
