After 13 years standing not far from the Fairfield Commons Mall, Abuelo’s Mexican restaurant has decided to close its Beavercreek doors for good.

After a customer saw a “closed” sign on the doors when attempting to get dinner, the company took to Facebook to explain to the customer.

“With regret, our Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant in Beavercreek, Ohio has closed. All employees were personally notified and our managers were on site to talk with them personally and provide assistance in finding other employment opportunities in the community. We are thankful for our guests, like you, for your loyal patronage over the years. We encourage you to visit our other Abuelo’s locations in Ohio or any others throughout the nation,” the Facebook comment read.

Social Science Major Kaitlyn Long worked at Abuelo’s for nearly two years, and says that the circulating message Abuelo’s posted to Facebook is incorrect. “It says that each staff member was personally notified of the stores closing. I was not personally notified.”

“The store closed on Dec 31. When doors closed at 9:30 everyone was told the store was closing. I didn’t find out until nearly midnight and I only found out on accident. Of course my initial reaction was anger. I had no idea that there was even a possibility and now without any warning i have to figure out how to make money, because i counted on Abuelos to pay my rent and help me pay for school,” Long continued.

Long said when speaking to the Regional Manager, he told her that the counters in corporate just didn’t see it worth it to keep open.

Abuelo’s has not yet announced the reason for the closure and many customers have commented on Facebook to question in confusion. Other users have posted comments pointing the finger to the recently opened (2015) Chuy’s restaurant for possibly taking some of Abuelo’s business and leading to the closure.

For Abuelo’s lovers, the next closest restaurant is at 5010 Deerfield Blvd in Mason, Ohio and then 2833 Dixie Hwy just into Kentucky in the town of Ft Mitchell.
