Owner Closes TX Restaurant for an 'Attitude Adjustment'

Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

Well, here's one way to deal with morale problems in the fast food industry. The owner of an Abilene, TX location of the Schlotzsky's sandwich chain has temporarily closed the restaurant with a sign outside the shop announcing his intentions: "Closed for Attitude Adjustment." The owner tells KTAB in the video below that he closed the restaurant because he noticed his employees' "poor service" and that "there weren't a lot of smiles." In the time off, the staff has deep-cleaned the restaurant and has "had time to think about the job they were doing." Although the sign indicates that the restaurant would be reopening today, the owner thinks it will still take a few more days, with KHOU.com reporting a Monday reopening. Go, watch the video:
