ANN ARBOR, MI – A popular Greek restaurant in Ann Arbor, Michigan – Kouzina – closed its doors before being evicted, owing $39,000 to its landlord in a community heavy wit students from the University of Michigan.
MLive said district court records revealed the information and that the restaurant’s sign was taken down and the building appeared empty inside, lasting five years there, even through the Coronavirus period.
It was known for traditional Greek fast food fare like gyro bowls, spanakopita and horiatiki Greek salads while KouZina Greek Street Food also operates another location in Royal Oak.
Owner Bobby Laskaris told the site that he had to give up the business before the end of the lease because the rent was too high, business continued to suffer after the COVID-19 pandemic and road closures slowed customer traffic.
But the site said that court records showed the landlord had gone to court to evict him, citing unpaid rent for two months, late fees, a water utility and solid waste also being due for some time.
