(Missoula Current) An email sent to Jakers customers and gift card holders on Tuesday said the Missoula restaurant, located on Brooks Street, is closing.

The announcement, made shortly after 10 a.m., marks the latest in a string of restaurant closures on the south side of the city, including HuHot and Dennys.

“Jakers Missoula is closing,” the email stated. “Something new coming. Thank you for your patronage.”

The notice gave no further details and a corporate spokesperson couldn’t be immediately reached.


HuHot and Jakers sit side by side on Brooks Street in the Midtown area of Missoula.

Other southside closures have included Denny’s, Lucky’s Market and two Subway locations. At the same time, several new restaurants have landed across the city on North Reserve.
