20 Charlie Brown’s Steakhouses Closed For Good

MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ (AP) – Some steak lovers will have to look elsewhere for their beef after CB Holding Corp. closed 20 Charlie Brown’s Steakhouse restaurants and 10 Bugaboo Creek Steak House restaurants in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.

The restaurants, representing about one-third of the chain’s tally, were underperforming, Charlie Brown’s director of marketing Rich Covey told The Courier News of Bridgewater. The Mountainside-based company is still operating 29 Charlie Brown’s locations, 20 Bugaboo Creek steakhouse restaurants and seven locations of The Office Beer Bar & Grill.

The company was looking to place employees from the closed restaurants in ones that are still open, Covey said.

Word of the closings surprised longtime customers like Catherine Wilson, who works at a business next to the Charlie Brown’s in Green Brook. Wilson said she and her colleagues frequented the restaurant for holiday parties and lunch gatherings. Her favorites on the menu included buffalo wings and the buffet, she said.

“I wish the employees good luck,” Wilson told the newspaper. “That was our closest lunch place to walk to.”

      A disgruntled ex employee… Theres plenty of those to go around… Those “Drunken Idiots” have been gone for almost 2 years… You can thank Sam Borgese and his crackerjack financial team for the latest woes.

    Charlie Browns in Pam Am -Met Life building always a favorite stop before train. Strange when management under-performs it never takes the hit. I wonder what the CEO took home for salary and why wasn’t management removed and changed out to rectify under performance and save the Brand (and the jobs).

    I guess the steaks will be sent to China or India for cooking then shipping them back for sale.
