A Jacksonville Carrabba's location has closed its doors for good.
The last day of business at the Carrabba's restaurant in Regency was Feb. 15, according to a company spokesperson.
All employees were given a severance package and the company is working to find them positions at Bloomin' Brands Inc.'s other restaurants, the spokesperson said.
The restaurant closed two days before Bloomin’ Brands announced plans to close 40 underperforming Carrabba’s, Outback, Bonefish Grill and Flemings restaurants throughout the country.
Three restaurants were closed in the last quarter of 2016 and the rest of the underperforming restaurants will be closed by the end of the year.
All other Carrabba's in Jacksonville will remain open.
"Closing a restaurant is never easy. It was a business decision and has no reflection on the employees or their service," the spokesperson said.
Spokesperson says workers got severance package, company trying to place them at other restaurants. No other Jax locations expected to close https://t.co/3ZBF7DVHeO— Brittney Donovan (@brittneydonovan) February 21, 2017
