Mama Inez Express to Close After Nearly 20 Years, Consolidating Operations to Main Location
– Mama Inez Express, the second location of a Chubbuck restaurant, will be closing its doors after 18 years of operation.
– Operations will be consolidated to the main Mama Inez location at 390 Yellowstone Avenue, ensuring a full staff and continued service to loyal customers.
In Chubbuck, the second location of Mama Inez Express, a popular restaurant with nearly 40 years of history, is set to close its doors after nearly two decades in business. The closure comes as the building has been on sale for a few months, attracting interest from potential buyers. Business has been slowing down for the past couple of years, and the restaurant has faced challenges in fully staffing both locations, leading to occasional closures. With the impact of COVID-19 and the shift towards drive-through service, the decision was made to consolidate operations to the main Mama Inez location at 390 Yellowstone Avenue. This move ensures that the staff from Mama Inez Express will be transferred to the Yellowstone location, maintaining a full team of experienced employees. Although no new positions are currently available, future hiring may be possible. The Mama Inez family encourages loyal customers to visit their Yellowstone location for dine-in or takeout options and hopes to win back their support.
