Despite Community Support Del Taco Restaurants Forced to Close

ST. LOUIS, MO. (KMOX) — Del Taco restaurants on South Grand and McCausland closed their doors Thursday night and their Chesterfield-based owner is thanking those that came to their defense.

“We’ve done everything in our power to keep these restaurants open and retain the jobs of 34 employees,” Pat Shields Operating Partner of DF Restaurants, LLC. said. “Despite the stable financial performance of these restaurants and the overwhelming support of the community, we have no choice but to close.”

A contractual agreement prohibits Shields from elaborating.

Restaurant management company, DF Restaurants purchased the two franchises in 2005.
