For Immediate Release
Rodizio Grill to Cease Operations at UMC
Brazilian steakhouse’s last day will be April 7
TOOELE VALLEY, UTAH (April 3, 2019) — Utah Motorsports Campus (UMC) regrets to announce that Rodizio Grill Restaurant will not be renewing their subsidized lease at UMC and have made known that they will cease operations after this weekend.
Despite the fact that UMC heavily subsidized the Rodizio Grill operation in a number of ways, they were unable to produce any positive results under the profit-sharing agreement with UMC.
"We have enjoyed our partnership with Rodizio and are sad to see them go,” said William Lee, President of UMC. “We wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors. An earnest attempt was made by everyone involved to find a mutually-beneficial arrangement for both parties. We will immediately begin a new search for a restaurant partner to host the tens of thousands of local residents, tourists and race fans who patronize UMC."
Rodizio has announced that their last day of service will be on Sunday, April 7th. Employees of their UMC location have all been offered positions within the company at their three other Utah locations.
UMC is very pleased with the various partnerships and user groups in place and will continually search for additional future partnerships that will benefit everyone involved.
The 2019 racing season at UMC got underway last weekend and will continue through mid-October. The UMC Kart Track is scheduled to be open for 2019 kart rentals starting April 15.
