Almost one year ago, the local Red Lobster Restaurant suffered significant damage from a fire.  Read the original store here. 

According to the website, Red Lobster has been a beloved seafood chain since it started in Orlando, Florida, in 1968. With a presence across most of the United States and various other parts of the world, Red Lobster had over 700 locations as of 2020. 

Red Lobster has changed owners several times throughout the years, and reports continue to surface that the chain is facing financial difficulty. Further, recent times have seen many individual Red Lobster restaurants close.

Red Lobster’s CEO has often come out to say the chain isn’t closing and that they’re not planning on closing locations. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has been tough on a lot of restaurants, including Red Lobster.

This is a developing story.

Not surprised at all.

Ever since the China Flu Planicdemic their food quality and service took a major dump just like a few other local establishments that are probably on their way out.

Mission accomplished???
