Greenwood Max and Erma's closes for good

Posted at 6:24 AM, Jan 19, 2016

Max and Erma's, one of the first casual dating chains in the Midwest, has closed its Greenwood location.

American Blue Ribbon Holdings, the company that owns Max and Erma's, is closing 13 "underperforming locations."

The other Max and Erma's locations -- in Carmel, Edinburgh and Evansville -- will remain open.

In a statement, American Blue Ribbon Holdings said:

A member of our Sr. Leadership team was at each restaurant this morning to personally deliver this news and to provide each and every team member with a severance agreement.  We felt that the best way to handle this news was to deliver the news in person. This insured that each employee was dealt with individually and in person. The team members are currently working to efficiently close down their restaurants and will be donating unopened food items to charitable organizations in their community.  We enjoyed serving our loyal guests in these restaurants over the years and look forward to serving them in our other locations. 

The last day of business for the closing Max and Erma's spots was Jan. 18.

The Greenwood spot was open for at least 25 years.
