Scotty’s Brewhouse has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy as a means to restructure financially. As part of the plan, four restaurants will close by the end of the year. The Fort Wayne location is not one of them.
The four restaurants slated to close by the end of the year are located in Carmel, Muncie and downtown Indianapolis. A restaurant in Waco, Texas will also be closed.
“The process we have initiated today will allow us the opportunity to emerge stronger and better position the Company for growth. We will close locations that are not profitable by the end of this year. Additionally, the company moving forward will focus its efforts on growing the brand through franchising as well as management agreements. These actions will allow us to provide better service to our guests and strategically expand with new locations in the future,” said Chris Martin, Brand President of Scotty’s Brewhouse.
The first Scotty’s Brewhouse opened in Muncie in 1996.
