Simply Sloppy Joes will close tomorrow in Lakewood

For nine years, Simply Sloppy Joes has been dishing up sloppy goodness in Lakewood. But when the last sandwich has been served up tomorrow, the business will close its doors for good.

Here's the posting on the Facebook page:

This is with a very heavy heart, I must tell you all, that I am closing Simply Sloppy Joes. I would never just leave in the middle of the night without announcing it to all of my loyal Joe fan's. I have no regrets, we have run an awesome business for almost nine years, but the time has come for this Entrepreneur to throw in the towel. I could never express how much you all have meant to me. I thank you all for the love and support you have shown to me and my little restaurant. We will be finishing off the year but uncertain of the next. I love and will miss you all!

Love and Laughter Always, Jennifer AKA "The Sloppy Joe Lady"

The space and equipment are available, but "I am not selling Joe, Joe comes with me!" she says. Find more details on the Simply Sloppy Joes Facebook page.
