In a Monday morning tweet, the Georgia-based dine-in business said it’s closing 365 locations across the US. An additional 1,627 locations will remain open, the company said.
A Waffle House spokesperson said Tuesday morning that the company will release a more detailed statement on the matter soon, declining to comment further.
Waffle House is a restaurant chain known for staying open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in spite of most environmental conditions. Most of its 1,900+ restaurants are located in the nation’s southeast. In the past, federal officials have been known to use them as a gauge to determine the severity of a hurricane, tornado or other hazards on a local area.
