Howdy Folks! Today we’re taking a look at a recently closed Luby’s/Fuddruckers Combo. This store at 24033 Cinco Ranch Blvd, Katy, TX 77494 represents the final generation of stores built, and was an older “new” location originally opening in 2014. This store was significant as being the second combo location to open, as the Fuddruckers deal was still relatively fresh at the time. During bankruptcy, this location was put up for sale. While both restaurants continued to operate until sometime around June, it seems that the fate of all the restaurants put up for sale was sealed, as Luby’s likely knows they can get more for the land than they could from someone interested in buying the restaurant. The area is prime for redevelopment, with the recent conversion of PDQ to Layne’s occurring just next door. So what’s going on at the vacant Luby’s/Fuddruckers? Not much, other than waiting for a buyer. A more interesting question would be What’s going on with Luby’s Inc? While Chicago restaurant, Calvin Gin did purchase over half of the remaining locations back in June 2021, little news has come out in the past few months. Unfortunately, the answer to this question remains to be seen.
