Fort Wayne Metro Diner closed

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) — After less than a year of being open, the local Metro Diner has closed its doors for good.

Employees with the diner said they were told on Sunday that the shift would be their last. They were working on cleaning the closed diner on Monday. The company website no longer lists the Fort Wayne location.

Metro Diner opened its Fort Wayne branch on Coldwater Road in April 2018. It was one of a national chain to offer serious diner food from an extensive menu of traditional diner dishes.

Metro diner’s original location in Jacksonville, Florida was featured on the Food Network program “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.” Since that 2010 appearance, a lot has changed.

There are now more than 70 locations in seven states. They still operate four locations near Indianapolis and a location in Granger.
