[CLOSURE ALERT] Jason's Deli Closes One Metro Location, "Temporarily Closes" Two Others

The Jason's Deli at 11720 Medlock Bridge Road in Johns Creek Village in Johns Creek has closed.  The roughly 5,000 square foot restaurant was one of 13 nationally closed by the Beaumont, Texas-based chain.  Four other locations remain "temporarily closed," including at Cumberland Mall near Smyrna and their East Cobb location in Marietta.  According to their website, the chain operates nearly 300 restaurants across 28 states. 

In Johns Creek, referred to as the "Duluth" location on the Jason's Deli website, the restaurant was one of several dining options in the LA Fitness, TJ Maxx and ROSS anchored center at the corner of Medlock Bridge and McGinnis Ferry Roads.  Remaining eateries in the center include Chili's, Chipotle, Smoothie King, Poke City, and First Watch, among others. 

According to data compiled by CNN, Deli Management, Inc., the parent company of Jason's Deli and owner of most of the chain's restaurants, was approved in April for a PPP loan of between $5 million and $10 million.  

Two of the other Jason's closures took place in Maryland leaving the chain with a single unit in Columbia.  The chain appears to have closed no locations in their home state of Texas, where they continue to operate 114 locations. 

For those looking to own their very own Amana commercial microwave, box of brown sugar, ceiling tiles, small, long or big green tables or other "miscellaneous tools and bits," Restaurant is holding a virtual auction to liquidate the restaurant's FF&E.   

Sixteen other locations of the deli remain open in Georgia including metro Atlanta outposts in Buckhead, Alpharetta, Decatur, Tucker, Midtown, Kennesaw and Peachtree Corners, among others.

It's no fun going to a restaurant when you are treated like you have leprosy. Negative, bad vibe energy. Some restaurants just are not worth the hassle.

Their salad bar is fantastic. Their sandwiches are just meh and a little overpriced. Post-covid, looking forward to the salad bar again. But for now, they're in for a rough time.

What's odd to me is that the Cumberland location had reopened for awhile before temporarily closing again. It was my first meal out when I forgot lunch after my office opened back up. Its not my favorite place, but it was decently priced for a quick sandwich and 'escape' from the office.

Normally not a fan of chains, but Jason's just does it for me! Mostly, it's the salad bar. Without it, it's just not the same.
