The official word from me is that everything is fine at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in La Cumbre Plaza. They hopefully will remain in business for many years to come.
However, I have received no less than a dozen emails in the last 24 hours from local Ruth’s Chris employees saying that they were notified yesterday that the restaurant in La Cumbre Plaza is closing June 19th.
I called Chris Casberg, General Manager at the local Ruth’s Chris and he said he could not confirm or deny this information. Casberg told me to speak with Cheryl Henry, the Chief Business Development Officer at the Ruth’s Chris home office in Florida. I have left messages for Henry and received no response. I was also told to speak with John MacDonald Vice-President of Legal for Ruth’s Hospitality Group. I left messages for MacDonald with no response.
I am told that KEYT has received similar messages from Ruth’s Chris employees and that news anchor Paula Lopez has mention this fact on her Facebook page.
