The last Ryan’s Buffet in Kansas has closed its doors.

The long-operating restaurant at 10810 W. 75th Street in Shawnee closed earlier this month as the company’s lease on the building came to an end. The restaurant’s parent company Buffets LLC, has experienced serious financial troubles since the start of the Great Recession. It filed for bankruptcy protection in March 2016 — the third time it had filed for chapter 11 since 2008.

The company is holding an auction for the restaurant equipment and fixtures online that ends tomorrow.
