Max and Erma's moves out of Mishawaka

MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- Another big name restaurant is moving out of Mishawaka.

A tip on our ABC57 Facebook page said Max and Erma's has closed its doors. The restaurant's Corporate confirmed today that its Main Street location officially closed two days ago.

The company says it is an isolated closing and the franchisee simply fell victim to the economic downturn and was foreclosed on by the lender.

Within the last month a Hooters restaurant just around the corner from Max and Ermas also closed.

The company released the following statement to ABC 57:

Max & Erma’s was very saddened to learn that the franchisee who owned the South Bend area restaurant was forced to close it. The last last day of business was Oct. 30.  This is an isolated closing – it’s business as usual at all other Max & Erma’s. Like many casual dining restaurants around the Midwest, the restaurant sadly fell victim to the economic downturn that has hit the restaurant business especially hard.  It was foreclosed on by a lender. While there are no immediate plans to reopen it, Max & Erma’s would consider returning to the South Bend area with the right franchise partner.
