I guess we'll all have to find a new place to get pies and satisfy our french toast cravings because Perkins Restaurant and Bakery on East State Street in Rockford has closed its doors permanently.

I will admit it has been years since I last went to Perkins, but this news from 13 WREX about the restaurant closing still came as a bit of a shock to me.

WREX reports;

The restaurant on E. State Street posted a sign on its door saying, “We regret to announce that this Perkins restaurant has closed.” It went on to thank customers for their loyalty over the years.

Perkins’ website no longer lists Rockford as one of its restaurant locations. Google also lists the location as “permanently closed”. The next closest location is in Janesville, WI.

Dang it, now I am really craving some pie.

If you're wondering why Rockford's Perkins location suddenly closed, we don't know and probably never will. WREX says they reached out to the company for a statement, but have not received a response yet.
