Last Call: Restaurant Chains Closing Locations by 2020
Joeâ€™s Crab Shack
Joe’s Crab Shack is an informal seafood chain that specializes in huge buckets of crab, stuffed shrimp, and a boatload of other American comfort dishes that we love. It could have been their competition with Bubba Gump or independent seafood restaurants that sent them down the toilet, but whatever it was, something happened that made Joe’s less desirable for customers. The company filed for bankruptcy in 2017 and abruptly closed 41 of its locations. There are currently 58 locations still open, but more are expected to close this year.
