Last Cheeseburger in Paradise unit closes permanently in Secaucus, N.J.

Parent Luby’s Inc., which also owns Fuddruckers, is in the process of liquidating assets

The last Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant has closed permanently in Secaucus, N.J., as parent Luby’s Inc. continues with its planned liquidation process.

In 2012, when Luby’s acquired Cheeseburger in Paradise, the casual-dining brand had 23 units. The last New Jersey unit had suspended operations in March when the COVID-19 pandemic was declared, according to a local report.

RSK: I used to love CBIP but they became sloppy and loose with their quality and product. Was a fun run albeit a short one. Fuddruckers carry’s on however.

Ken Notes: Restaurants over 6,000 sq feet are going to be tough sledding in any market for some time to come.
