WAITE PARK -- After over a decade of serving central Minnesota, a local restaurant is suddenly closing its doors.

Famous Dave's announced on Thursday that their Waite Park location is scheduled to close following 12 years of business.

The restaurant will end its run officially at the end of the business day on Saturday.

A company spokeswoman says it was a hard decision to make, but it simply was just a business decision.  The company also owns the Famous Dave's restaurants in Fargo, Bismarck, Sioux City and Sioux Falls.  They are all staying open.  The company also owns the rights to the Famous Dave's retail products, which you will still be able to buy in stores.
