Man Shares Famous Restaurant Chains on the Verge of Disappearing and We're Kind of Sad

Say it isn’t so. It’s so hard to imagine our favorite restaurants not being around anymore. Some have been part of our lives for so long that we don’t even know what the world would look like without them. TikTok content creator @poshman brings us a sad list of restaurants nearing extinction. While some aren't too surprising, others are just downright sad!

Is your favorite place on this list?

OMG. It’s really hard to envision Pizza Hut closing 450 stores. Eeek! If you’re anything like us, you have fond childhood memories of the wavy plastic cups and scorching hot pizza with your friends and family on a Saturday night. If we’re being honest, it’s been a long time since we’ve been to Pizza Hut, but it makes us really sad to think about it being gone.

Chipotle making this list was a little surprising to us, as it still feels like a newer brand. It makes sense, though, with the health scares they've encountered, that this would also be a chain facing hard times. Viewer @Juan gives us hope. "They just built 2 Chipotles in my city, think they’ll be fine.”

We were shocked to learn that Steak and Shake went from 5000 stores in 2008 to only 400 today. Wow! Viewers were also upset by this glum statistic, and, @EvanKing said, “If we lose Steak and Shake, I will never recover.” Many people won't!

Sadly, there are a lot of restaurants facing hard times. Perhaps the best action that any of us can take is to patronize our favorite places a little more often. What would the world be like without Pizza Hut? We don’t even want to know.
