Officials in Rosemont announced that they are considering an offer to replace Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill as the company faces severe financial challenges. An eviction hearing is scheduled for later this week in which a judge could decide to close its doors immediately.
The chain has been going through a difficult time as locations throughout the US have closed. In the past few months Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill in major locations such as Phoenix, Denver, Orlando, Cincinnati, Houston, Minnesota, Virginia and California have been forced to close due to non-payment of taxes and rent.
Making their move to replace the defaulting bar is a joint enterprise between Joe’s Bar on Weed Street and Bub City of Lettuce Entertain You. They are both already exist in Chicago, and have a country-style atmosphere.
The closure of Toby Klein’s could result in 170 people laid-off from their full and part-time jobs.
