(ABC 6 News) -- Tonight is the last night to get your Perkins fix in Rochester. It's been confirmed, by management, that both Perkins locations are going out of business.
ABC 6 News spoke with a restaurant employee who said they found out about the closing of the restaurants this afternoon. The 16th Ave. NW location was the only restaurant still open to the public, as of Thursday evening. The interior of the South Broadway location was dark.
The employee, who had worked at the restaurant for 13 years, said emotions have been high and a lot of tears had been shed. The employee estimated more than 60 employees will be without a job.
According to management, it was a very difficult decision. Management said sales had been going down and expenses had been going up.
