Ruby Tuesday restaurants in region to stay open

Despite recent closures, Ruby Tuesday restaurants in North Dakota will remain open.

Todd Hoekstra, franchise owner of Ruby Tuesday restaurants in the Dakotas, Wyoming and Iowa said his restaurants do "extremely well." The chain has locations in Grand Forks, Fargo, Bismarck and Minot.

"We're fine," Hoekstra said. He added the restaurants that have closed were company-owned restaurants.

Ruby Tuesday Inc. said last week it would close 95 restaurants after posting its fourth straight quarterly loss, according to Reuters. Seven of its 11 Twin Cities restaurants have closed, the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal reported Wednesday.
