The temporary closures are part of the process of moving from corporate to franchise operations, Kadylak previously told the Dayton Daily News.
In August 2018, the 621-unit Steak ‘n Shake chain announced it would offer potential franchise partners who pay $10,000 and who commit to a six-month training program the chance to own what is now a corporate-operated Steak ‘n Shake restaurant.
Locations in Springfield, Troy, Fairborn, Main Street in Dayton, Huber Heights, Miamisburg and Wilmington Pike in Dayton remain open according to the company’s website.
