Another restaurant in Council Bluffs is closing.
This time, it’s the Perkins Family Restaurant at 3250 South Expressway.
Employees of the restaurant have told customers its closing date is June 23.
The Daily Nonpareil contacted Perkins management for a comment, but a phone call was not immediately returned. The reason for its closing has yet to be determined.
Perkins has been open for “a little more than 42 years,” the employees said.
In a 2018 interview with Patty McQueen, longtime server and now trainer at Perkins, McQueen said:
“I’ve gotten to know a lot of great people in Council Bluffs as a result of working here for the past (40) years,” she said. “Working here gives me an opportunity to keep up with those friends.”
