Toby Keith’s restaurant chain is in financial trouble.
There’s no love lost between Rosemont, Illinois and Toby’s Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill. The village and the operators of the restaurant are expected to square off in Thursday over unpaid taxes and rent. Rosemont filed a lawsuit to evict the country singer’s bar from a city-owned building. The restaurant owes hundreds of thousands of dollars to the village.
According to the “Orlando Sentinel,” the “Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar And Grill” location in Orlando closed its doors last week, after being open for just seven months. Liens filed in local courts show that the location owed more than one-point-five million dollars to its landlord and contractors. It’s not the only location that has gone under. Several of Toby’s restaurants in Michigan, California, Minnesota and Texas have all closed down in recent months, as well.
