7 Restaurant Chains Making Big Comeback

Sweet Tomatoes

Sweet Tomatoes, also known as Souplantation in California, was hit hard by the pandemic, just like many other buffet restaurants. 

Steak and Ale

This beloved bargain steak chain closed its doors far before the pandemic, but now Steak and Ale is ready for a comeback. 

CiCi's Pizza

This Texas-based pizza chain had already begun to decline before the pandemic with systemwide sales dropping from $443.3 million to $393.9 million

Pizza Kitchen

California Pizza Kitchen was hit hard by the pandemic: dine-in sales at the chain dropped a precipitous 77% in the last week of March 2020

Golden Corral

This year, Golden Corral celebrates 50 years in business, with plans to invest in off-premise formats, such as drive-thrus.

Logan's Roadhouse

Not long after, however, Nashville-based restaurant group SPB Hospitality acquired the CraftWorks portfolio for $93 million.


That being said, the store count has bottomed out to 125 while the chain had over 800 locations nearly 3o years ago.
