A South Bend restaurant has reopened to customers after the health department ordered that it be temporarily closed after officials issued more than a half-dozen violations.
King Gyros Express on South Michigan Street was fined $1,200, according to the South Bend Tribune.
Meantime, three other King Gyros locations in South Bend, which are under different ownership, are preparing to launch a re-branding effort to reflect a separation from other stores with the same or similar name, including the store on South Michigan Street, according to a news release distributed by Jenna Nelson with Monkeyhouse Marketing & Design.
Thomas Allen, owner and operator of the King Gyros locations on Western Avenue, Dixie Way and Lincoln Way West in South Bend, is not affiliated with the store on South Michigan Street, the news release stated.
Allen’s locations have rigorously complied with health code requirements and feature different menu items from the other locations, the news release stated.
The re-branding will include both a new name and logo that further differentiates Allen’s locations from other King Gyros branch-offs.
