Last Call: Restaurant Chains Closing Locations by 2020
Kona Grill introduced Asian cuisine to America in a way that nobody had seen before when it opened its first location in 1998. Sales began dropping off in 2015, leading the company to cut back costs on their ingredients, staff, decor, basically everything that makes customers want to dine somewhere. Because of this, sales continued to drop, and this year, the chain filed for bankruptcy. As a result, 19 locations have closed and the company is now in search of a buyer.
