Two restaurants in Lansing Township close

Max & Erma's in the Eastwood Towne Center in Lansing Township has shut its doors for good.

A sign posted on the door thanks customers and instructs them to visit other Max & Erma's locations. The Lansing Township location was just one of three Max & Erma's still open in Michigan.

In January, the chain announced the closing of eight restaurants statewide without warning. The corporate owner American Blue Ribbon Holdings issued a statement in January saying the closures were part of a restructuring plan. American Blue Ribbon Holdings acquired Max & Erma's in 2010.

Max & Erma's is the second restaurant to close in the Eastwood Towne Centre in the last few days.

Tony Sacco's Coal Oven Pizza is now closed as well. A sign on its front door says it is closed for renovations but the executive director of the Eastwood Downtown Development Authority tells the Lansing State Journal, the owner has sold the lease.

Tony Sacco's Lansing is also deleted from the company's locator on its website. The nearest Tony Sacco's is in Howell on East Highland Road.

No word on what will replace either the Max & Erma's or Tony Sacco's. If you purchased gift cards from Max & Erma's contact guest relations at (800)-800-3644.
