WARSAW — A sale is pending for the former Richards Restaurant building in Warsaw.
According to David Augustyniak, a realtor with RealtyFlex Of N.E. Indiana, LLC, Fort Wayne, the sale is expected to close on or before Sept. 1.
The building, located at 3605 Commerce Drive, Warsaw, operated as a Richards Restaurant for at least three decades before closing May 13.
Staff shortage was the reason given for the closure of the Warsaw restaurant.
Augustyniak said the potential new owner of the building is “a legitimate buyer by all means” and is buying the building with the intention of opening a new restaurant there, although those plans “are not 100 percent in place.”
A Richards Restaurant in Auburn is also up for sale and one in Fort Wayne recently sold.
