After almost three years in operation, the Jimmie’s Diner location in northwest Wichita has closed. Monday was the last day for the restaurant at 2121 North Tyler Road.
Co-owner Jack Davidson said in a press release that it’s time for the company to support its other two locations. Davidson said sales have not supported the location and there have been concerns with ongoing road construction over the past year.
Employees at the west side location have been offered positions at the other Jimmie’s Diner restaurants on North Rock Road and on George Washington Boulevard, and both locations continue to report strong sales.
Jimmie’s Diner has been in business since 1987, and it was purchased by the Davidson family in 2007 from the King family. The George Washington Boulevard location was added in 2012.
