Johnston is losing a dining spot where pie and breakfast are served all day long.

Village Inn Restaurants has announced it will close its 8510 Birchwood Court location in Johnston on July 1. 

The restaurant has served affordable breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes since it opened in 2000.

“After very careful consideration, we have made the tough but necessary decision to discontinue operations at this location,” a Village Inn spokesperson said in a news release. “This is never an easy decision to make and one driven by many business factors. It is important to note that all employees who desire to stay with the company will be relocated to another location in the market or will be provided a parting severance package."

The Village Inn restaurant chain first opened in 1958. Today, there are more than 200 restaurants located in the Rocky Mountain region, the Midwest, Arizona and Florida, and other states. 

"Village Inn can’t thank our loyal guests enough for their friendship and patronage over the years, and we invite them to join us at one of our many other area locations where they will see the same friendly faces and enjoy great-tasting food,” the release said.
