(9/26/18) According to our partners at The News-Star, Ryan’s has been a local favorite in Ruston for many years, and has closed abruptly to accommodate the end of their lease.
The remaining assets are being offered to the general public through a strategic partnership with Auction Nation, a national online auction company.
“It is sad to see this location close its doors since so many local patrons have been coming here for years.” Mats Myhre, a spokesperson for Auction Nation, said. “This is an amazing opportunity not only for people in the restaurant industry, but for patrons and the general public alike to bid on and purchase the assets from Ryan’s”.
Ryan’s is a part of Buffets LLC which is comprised of Ryan’s, Hometown Buffet, Country Buffet, and Old Country Buffet. Buffets LLC continues with its Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings by restructuring its debts and liabilities and strengthening its operations by continuing to close weaker restaurants.
The Ruston location is the second to last Ryan’s remaining in Louisiana. The last one is in Lake Charles.
