The Fazoli’s restaurant near the University of Kentucky has closed.
Julia Block, a Fazoli’s spokeswoman, said in a statement that the restaurant, at the corner of Euclid Avenue and South Upper Street but technically at 130 Winslow Street, closed Dec. 21. The site is valued at $614,900 on the Fayette County property valuation administrator’s website.
The Fazoli’s statement said employees at that restaurant have been offered jobs at other Fazoli’s in Lexington. The fast-casual Italian chain, based in Lexington, has Lexington restaurants at 2195 Richmond Road, 1951 North Broadway, 2200 Nicholasville Road, 4204 Saron Drive, 1840 Alysheba Way and 3775 Harrodsburg Road.
Fazoli’s also has restaurants in Nicholasville, Georgetown, Winchester, Frankfort, Richmond and Danville.
Lisa Vimmerstedt, whose Lyle Properties in Winter Park, Fla., owns the site on which the former Fazoli’s operated, said her company will seek a new tenant.
“I’ve had people who have contacted me the last several years about it, ... but nothing concrete,” Vimmerstedt said Friday.
