Keeping a restaurant open is a tough business, and the previous owner of the establishment said in the announcement on social media that work and family balance was a factor. But, also that the cost of food skyrocketing was also an issue.
After 7 years of business Port City Bar-B-Que will be shutting down immediately to make room for the new owners.
From Port City Bar-B-Que's Facebook page:
"After 7 years of serving Shreveport Bossier we are closing our doors effective immediately.
We have sold the restaurant to group who have big plans for the space. They are not continuing Port City Bar B Que but they are continuing to serve great food on Airline Dr.
2023 was our busiest and best year in sales.
We definitely had challenges as food costs have risen to crazy heights. However the reason we are selling is because my focus shifted with the new addition to my family last year and I dont have the time and energy required to keep the restaurant operational.
We want to thank every single one of you for the past 7 years. We had a blast and it was truly some of the best times of our lives.
To all of the musicians and comedians who provided endless nights of entertainment. Thank you.
To all of the amazing staff who were a part of the craziest adventure of my life. I will always cherish the time we had.
To the faithful customers who supported us for the past 7 years! We thank you for everything."
