The fast-food restaurant announced the announcement on Instagram with “a mixture of sadness and deep gratitude.”
The post Read: “It is with a mixture of sadness and deep gratitude that we announce that Dimino’s Subs will be closing permanently on Saturday, June 3rd, 2023.”
“Our goal has always been to offer high quality food at competitive prices in a family environment.
“For more than fifty years we have welcomed generations of customers to our store.
“We will always remain in humility and gratitude for the trust you have shown in our products and in us.”
According to the statement, John is retiring and “pursuing other ventures.”
The post, written by John and Joe, continued, “We would like to once again sincerely thank you for your support over the past five decades.”
“It was a wonderful ride and we send you all our best wishes for a prosperous and healthy future.”
Loyal fans commented below, expressing their sorrow in two words: “Pain” and “Nooooo.”
