Germantown Outback Among 41 Closures in Bloomin’ Brands Restructuring

On Saturday, news broke that Outback Steakhouse bid farewell to its Germantown outpost after over three decades of service. This closure marks a significant chapter in the annals of the local dining scene. The decision is part of Bloomin’ Brands Inc.’s broader strategy, which includes shuttering 41 establishments across its portfolio, encompassing nearby closures of Bonefish in Ashburn, VA, and Carrabba’s in Reston, VA.

Bloomin’ Brands Inc., the parent company overseeing Outback Steakhouse, Bonefish Grill, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse, and other renowned brands, announced the closure of these under-performing units. David Deno, CEO of Bloomin’ Brands, articulated during an analysts call, as reported by NRN, “We periodically review our asset base and, in our latest review, we made the decision to close 41 underperforming locations. The majority of these restaurants were older assets with leases from the ’90s and early 2000s.”

Outback Germantown, a fixture at 12609 Wisteria Dr. in the Germantown Square shopping center since the early ’90s, has bid adieu to its patrons. While some closures have already taken place, 33 restaurants shuttered permanently on Friday. However, in Montgomery County, the Aspen Hill location continues to serve patrons, while anticipation brews for a new Downtown Silver Spring location slated to open in the forthcoming months.
