Suzanne’s Kitchen Meal Assembly – Closed

This is somewhat old news, but I missed it. We previously wrote about Suzanne Somer’s meal assembly business venture called “Suzanne’s Kitchen”. Well, it closed last April and was only open for a few months.

From the abbreviated archive of Lexington, KY Herald-Leader:

Apr. 19–Five months after opening, Suzanne’s Kitchen, a do-it-yourself meal preparation business represented by actress Suzanne Somers, has closed its flagship store in Tates Creek Centre.

    un-attended with left over items that looks like an eye-soar from the window when you look in. Its an eye-soar to the neighboring Strip Stores when people walk by.

    Allow someone else to take on a new business venture and make
    a go of it.

  2. If your not going to make something else out of the empty Suzanne’s Kitchen that was only opened for few months and then it closed? Apparently, your food products was of no interests
    to the prospective customers. Customer’s today want a food product they can be drawn in with aroma & flavor, that the Suzanne’s Kitchen didn’t have.

    If someone on your end is able and willing to grant me the financial backing to set up the necessary Kitchen equipment and Upscale Cafe’ Furniture,Fixtures, I want set up in the Cafe’ I can all most nearly 100$ guarantee the money and customers will flow in like Milk & Honey regular, that eventually will allow us/me to seek a location that is un-attached to a Strip Mall of not having to pay lease payments.

    We want to be Opened Tuesdays throuhg Saturdays, from:
    11:00 AM-to-8PM.
    We want to be Closed on Sundays.
