Abuelo’s closes

Management and staff filled a U-Haul with equipment Thursday, Aug. 19, at Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant, 11299 Parkside Drive in Turkey Creek, after it permanently closed its doors Wednesday, Aug. 18. The business was in operation since July 4, 2006. “In between not doing the business we needed to do and renegotiating the lease, corporate decided to close,” Abuelo’s general manager John Volpe said. “Everybody is pretty torn up.” He noted, however, other Abuelo’s locations, such as Chattanooga, are still open.
