Western New York Restaurant Suddenly Closes For Good
We're heading into the point of the year that the weather gets colder, which means football and hockey will both be on the televisions.
More and more people will make their ways out with friends and family for events and games. Restaurants know that October and November are busy months during the year, and they always are prepared to accommodate the abundance of customers.
That's why it's a tough time of the year for any restaurant to close its doors, but that's what happened this week to a place that has served customers on Grand Island for the past four years.
According to both their website and Facebook page, Zobud Bistro has announced it has closed immediately. They will not reopen.
They site the rising cost of food, insurance, payroll, utilities and other economic conditions that have forced them to not continue on with the business.
They mentioned the fact that they opened six months before the pandemic struck, which sounds like it heavily contributed to this day coming. It's unfortunate news, since Grand Island only has so many restaurants to go around because of the size and location of the area.
Buffalo has lost too many great restaurants over the past three years, which includes restaurants that have been around for multiple decades, such as Brennan's in Clarence, which also closed because of the pandemic.
Rising cost of food, lack of employees and money losses due to closures all have contributed to the closings of multiple restaurants in Western New York.
