ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (WFRV) – Grazies Italian Grill may be gone, but Ashwaubenon will soon be introduced to a restaurant serving ribs, wings, and pizza – Parker John’s.
Last week, Ashwaubenon residents were shocked to learn Grazies was closing the doors to its Ashwaubenon location, citing a “challenging business decision.”
Parker John’s, who opened their first location in Kiel in 2008, has announced they will open their fourth location in the former home of Grazies.
“We are officially making this restaurant into a Parker John’s! We’ve got contractors here all ready. Stay tuned for updates. Let the fun & BBQ begin!!!” the restaurant announced on its Facebook page.
An opening date has not been set, but Parker John’s posted photos of the contractors at work on Monday morning.
Last week, Heartland Pizza Company offered those with unredeemed Grazies gift cards the chance to exchange them for up to $50 in Heartland Pizza gift cards. The restaurant is offering those who missed out on the first opportunity to exchange gift cards a second chance to do so on Monday from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Tuesday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Local 5 has reached out to Parker John’s, but they did not immediately respond to our request.
