Vacaville’s Rock & Brews postpones closure as company works with franchisee offer
By Amy Maginnis-Honey
VACAVILLE — The Vacaville’s Rock & Brews closure is delayed. The eatery was scheduled to close its doors Sunday.
“Sunday’s closure has been postponed temporarily as we are trying to work with a local franchisee offer,” Adam Goldberg, CEO of Rock & Brews, said Friday. “We are working toward keeping the restaurant open indefinitely. We are trying to save jobs.”
Employees got the good news Friday afternoon, said Brent Lott, general manager.
“This is very exciting,” he said. “We are so happy. This is great.”
Goldberg said he heard there were tears of joy from customers and staff when they heard the news.
It’s the first Rock & Brews restaurant in Northern California. Lott said about 90 employees will keep their jobs.
Rock legends Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of the band Kiss started the chain.
The Vacaville location opened in February 2018 with Stanley granting media interviews and hosting a group of veterans for a lunch.
Sacramento will get two new Rock & Brews in 2020, Goldberg said.
