Bravo Brio Restuarant Group will be closing some restaurants this year in response to financial difficulties related to shifting customer preferences, including a reported $2.7 million loss in its most-recent quarter.
Though no locations were specified, the restaurant group is planning on closing those restaurants whose leases are running out this year.
A planned marketing campaign is slated for this year, and both Bravo and Brio will introduce new menus in March, said Brian O’Malley, the company’s CEO.
O’Malley also hinted that some interior redesigns are in the works, shifting from the current “theatrical and Roman ruin” theme to a more contemporary design.
Some restaurants have as many as 150 employees.
