CLINTON — After 10 years of business, Maid-Rite in Clinton has closed its doors.
According to owner Louise Laurent, the company's 10-year contract agreement was due to expire and she made the decision to not renew the franchise.
"Our 10-year, original franchise agreement was up and we opted not to renew it," Laurent said.
Currently, Laurent has listed the Maid-Rite building and surrounding property for sale but says it is too early to tell if the location will generate interest from a potential buyer.
A representative of Maid-Rite corporate said the best thing would be for that location to remain a Maid Rite restaurant under a new franchisee.
"That's a good location and a good store. We want to continue it as a Maid-Rite," he said.
Maid-Rite opened on July 14, 2004 and closed June 30, 2014.
