The Risky Business Location in Oro Valley Is Closed

Posted By on Wed, Feb 9, 2011 at 10:40 AM

The owner of the local Risky Business restaurants says the chain restaurants that have been popping up along Oracle Road have made it necessary for him to close his Oro Valley location.

From the press release:

“The closing is a direct result of a substantial decrease in sales at this location due to the opening of a wave of chain restaurants up and down Oracle Road over the past several years. As a member of Tucson Originals, comprised of locally owned and operated restaurants, it is sad to see the disappearance of over 75 great restaurants in Tucson in just the past 18 months.”

The whole press release is after the jump.

Tucson, Ariz——Robert Raynor, the owner of Risky Business restaurants, announced today that after eleven years in business he has closed the Oro Valley location. “The decision to close this restaurant was a difficult one as I understand the impact this has on our employees and our many loyal Oro Valley customers. I deeply appreciate the hard work, passion, and enthusiasm of our employees at this location. We are working hard to find opportunities for these employees at our other three Risky Business restaurants. This closing allows us to focus our energy and efforts on the performance of our remaining three locations. We strongly believe in the potential of our ongoing business because of our high customer loyalty and neighborhood appeal. We will continue to pursue our ongoing remodeling and updating plan for our other locations which centers on ensuring that every guest experiences great food, great service and great value.”

“The closing is a direct result of a substantial decrease in sales at this location due to the opening of a wave of chain restaurants up and down Oracle Road over the past several years. As a member of Tucson Originals, comprised of locally owned and operated restaurants, it is sad to see the disappearance of over 75 great restaurants in Tucson in just the past 18 months.”

Any gift certificates or other coupon offers will, of course, be honored by any of the other locations.
