Logan's Roadhouse closes doors after 17 years

Logan’s Roadhouse at The Landing off Chapel Hill Road closed its doors for good over the weekend.

The restaurant opened at the location in 1999, when its first business license was issued, according to an official with the city of Douglasville’s business license department.

LRI Holdings, Inc. is the parent company of Logan’s, which opened its first restaurant in Lexington, Kentucky, in 1991 and is headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee.

The property, once owned by Douglasville Landing Venture, LLC, was sold to Dimension Development Partners, LLC in Atlanta in October 2016.

A call made to owners of the property, Dimension Development Managing Partner David Blass, was not returned Tuesday as of press time.

The Douglas County Kiwanis Club has been meeting almost nine years at Logan's Roadhouse on Chapel Hill Road and will now have to find a new meeting place, said long-time Kiwanis Club member Elaine Stone.

“We have been to the restaurant and talked with the manager verifying this fact. All the tables and everything on the walls are gone from the area where we usually meet,” she said.

Stone said one person at the restaurant had said they were having a problem working out a new lease.

“I know there hasn’t been a full-time manager in a while and some of the workers had also left,” she said.

The manager on the premises verified that last Sunday at 8 p.m. they would be closing, according to Stone.

The Douglasville restaurant wasn’t the only location to close over the weekend. The Columbus, Georgia location, which had been open since 1996, also shut its doors Sunday night, reported the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer,

According to Nation’s Restaurant News, Logan’s Roadhouse, Inc. closed 34 locations during bankruptcy proceedings, including those in Georgia cities of Albany, Brunswick and Savannah.

The company filed for bankruptcy in August 2016 and renegotiated leases to save $4 million in annual costs. It exited bankruptcy in December 2016.
