Max & Erma’s Rochester Hills Restaurant Closes after 19 Years

American Blue Ribbon Holdings, parent owner of the Max & Erma’s brand restaurants, abruptly closed 13 of its Midwest locations, eight in Michigan, including the local landmark at the Village of Rochester Hills on Monday.

Open for 19 years, it had continued operation at the corner of the former Meadowbrook Village Mall, which became The Village of Rochester Hills in 2002.

Shocking to employees and customers alike, the closure came without warning. A senior-level representative was at each location to personally deliver the message to employees and provide them with a severance package.

The Great Lakes Crossing location also closed. The three remaining restaurants in Michigan are in Clinton Township, Lansing, and Romulus.

The company has stated an announcement will be made on January 25, presumably telling the public its plans for the closed locations. Perhaps a different brand or new restaurant chain.
