It is unclear why Disney chose to close all but two of their restaurant locations. Employees at the Inner Harbor locations learned of the closing Tuesday evening and have a week to locate another job. Career counseling will be available for the location’s 140 employees and a severance package will be offered.
ESPN Zone Manager Dominic Minniti released this statement: “The overall economics of continuing this operation was very challenging. We have appreciated the opportunity to serve sports fans across the country for the past 12 years.”
Locations in New York, D.C., Chicago, Las Vegas and Baltimore are all scheduled to close Tuesday at midnight.
