GLASTONBURY, CT (WFSB) -- A well-known restaurant group is closing one of its local establishments.

Max Amore will be closing its doors on June 30.

Max Restaurant Group owner Richard Rosenthal said the closure is due to several reasons, including the end of its lease term, and that the space needs some extensive renovations, due to wear and tear.

He said the restaurant opened 25 years ago.

Plans for a new, free-standing location in Glastonbury are in the works, the company said.

“Max Amore has been an important and vital part of our group of restaurants and we are proud of the role that we have played in so many important celebrations and life events, as well as the friendships that we have built over the years with so many of our guests, many of whom dine with us weekly,” Rosenthal said in a press release. It’s been an honor and a privilege to work with such a dedicated and professional group of employees that made Max Amore such a wonderful place for all these years.”

None of the other Max Restaurant Group spots are being impacted by the closure, especially Max Fish located just next door.

All employees are being helped to find work at other Max locations.
