The Du-par's restaurant at the Suncoast has temporarily closed while Boyd Gaming, which operates the casino, takes over operations and management of the popular restaurant and bakery.
Boyd has reached a licensing agreement with Biff Naylor, owner of the Southern California-based chain, Boyd spokesman David Strow said today.
“He really wanted to focus on operations” in California, Strow said. “And since we like to operate our places ourselves, it worked. The agreement we reached will allow us to do that and maintain the Du-par's brand.”
The chain operates three locations in Southern California.
Another Las Vegas Du-par's location at the Golden Gate in downtown Las Vegas closed abruptly on Feb. 7.
