Sweet Tomatoes restaurants will close permanently


The 97 restaurants in the Sweet Tomatoes and Soup Plantation chain – known for their 50-foot salad bars and soup, pasta and pizza bars – will close permanently due to the coronavirus crisis.

The news was announced by CEO John Haywood at the San Diego Union-Tribune. Bay area employees had already learned that the layoffs would be permanent.

“The FDA had previously issued recommendations that included stopping self-service stations, such as self-service drinks in fast food restaurants, but they specifically talked about salad bars and buffets,” Haywood told the newspaper. . “The rules are understandable, but unfortunately, it is very difficult to reopen them. And I’m not sure the health services will ever allow it.
