Red Lobster store closures 2024: List of locations impacted

WASHINGTON — Dozens of Red Lobster stores across the country abruptly closed their doors Monday.

More than 80 Red Lobster locations in at least 27 states were listed as “temporarily closed” on the restaurant’s website.

Workers at the closed restaurants shared their disbelief on social media and said they received no notice.

The Orlando-based chain, known for its countless shrimp deals, is reportedly considering filing for bankruptcy to restructure its debt and reduce its 650 locations in the United States, CNN reports.

The company has not yet publicly acknowledged Monday’s closures and did not respond to a request for comment.

For years, Red Lobster faced a multitude of difficulties, both financial and internal.

In 2021 and 2022, the company saw a new CEO, CMO, CFO, and CIO join the C-Suite. All left after two years, according to CNN.

Last summer, the company revived its never-ending shrimp menu deal, resulting in an $11 million loss for the seafood chain, according to CNN.

Red Lobster’s main supplier, Thai Union, also recently severed ties with the seafood restaurant.

The following list shows Red Lobster locations listed as “closed” on their website, as of Monday afternoon.
