The current public health situation, combined with measures undertaken to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, has temporarily closed many businesses across the county.

That includes the 360,000-plus restaurants that, in many locations, have been forced to limit service to take out and delivery.

A segment of these businesses will not return after the current pandemic abates. According to the trade journal Restaurant Business, that includes Logan’s Roadhouse, which operates a restaurant at 2171 W. Fourth Street in Ontario. That post can be read here.

According to the report, all 261 locations are being closed indefinitely and mothballed, with 18,000 employees impacted by the move.

At the same time, corporate officials were terminated after decisions left employees without eligibility for extended health insurance, the report shares.

The chain operates restaurants under other names, none of which has a Richland County location.
