Yesterday, we posted that Food Buddha had heard that LeRoy's Fried Chicken may be closed and rebuilt as Ringside hotdog stand. Although we reached out to the owners, Clay Harper and Mike Nelson, for a comment, we did not hear back. However, Bill Addison of Atlanta Magazine spoke with Julia LeRoy, who confirmed the restaurant closed yesterday evening. LeRoy told Addison that she sat down with Harper and Nelson yesterday afternoon and they mutually decided to close it down. Addison also added: "They’d had positive customer feedback about the evolution of the product, but the business wasn’t making money and they all agreed they’d ultimately missed the mark on the concept." No word on what is LeRoy's next move.
