Friendly's in Lutherville to close Dec. 28

Friendly's restaurant in Lutherville will close its doors for good Dec. 28, the restaurant chain said in a statement Wednesday.

The location at 1414 York Road opened April 1, 1975, said Kirby Franzese, a spokeswoman for the chain.

The restaurant is owned by BR Food Group, Inc., a Friendly's franchisee, according to the statement. The group also closed a Friendly's at 353 South Main Street, in Bel Air, Dec. 14.

A man who identified himself as a general manager at the Lutherville location directed questions to a franchise phone number Wednesday morning. No one answered at the number, and there was no option to leave a voice message.

The Friendly's in Catonsville will remain open, according to general manager Omar Williams.

Williams said that location is not managed by BR Food Group, Inc.
