T.G.I. FRIDAY’S today closed its doors in Barbados for the final time

tgifridaysclosedBranded “a considerable disappointment” recently by operators, T.G.I. FRIDAY’S today closed its doors in Barbados for the final time.

A notice on the doors from operators Prestige Restaurants Ltd., announced to customers: “It is with deep regret TGI FRiDAY’S will no longer be open to the public as of today, 30th August, 2013.

“We wish to thank all our guests and suppliers for your support and service over the years.”

It was not immediately clear how many persons were employed at the time of the closure, but just this week Barbados TODAY reported that the Trinidad-based Prestige Holdings Limited had reported disappointing performance by the six-year old Hastings, Christ Church restaurant, noting that it was the worst performing when compared to Jamaica and Trinidad outlets.

“During the financial year our T.G.I. FRiDAY’S Barbados sustained a decrease in revenue by six per cent over prior year and an operating loss,” the operators had commented. (LB)

    T g I f should never been given a license to operate… it was supposed to benefit them,but it never benefited we. It’s time to support Barbados businesses. Most of all the local and all will benefit….. operate the business as a training wing of the restaurant /hospitality industry .train managers and chefs and stop allowing outsiders an excuse to come in .

    it’s a simple case: prices exorbitant and service poor, why would I be stupid and go there?
