Texas Restaurant that Charged Non-Mask Wearers a Higher Price Just Went Bankrupt

Linkedin Share

The restaurant in Denton, Texas, that announced higher prices for customers who won’t wear a mask just announced that it is closing its doors forever.

The Legends diner caused a national uproar last March when it posted a mask requirement for customers.

Wayne Lacombe, the owner of Legends posted a sign that told customers that they would have to pay $50 for asking why the diner wanted to require masks, and $75 if the owners had to hear the customer say they disagree.

But the diner owner said that the location has lost $200,000 since 2020.

Lacombe added, “We’re really at a disadvantage here. We have to stop the bleeding.”

In March, Lacombe tried to claim that he was just being “funny” with the sign, but that there was a serious side to the incident, too.

“When we put the sign up, it was done in humor,” he said. “But we wanted to make sure we got our word across that we were serious about this. Kat is a retired registered nurse, so we want to make sure that everybody is safe.”

Lacombe found both support and opposition to his sign stunt.

“It’s kind of hard to have respect for people that don’t feel the pain you’re feeling, so it is what it is,” he said.

The diner will close for food service on August 29 and then open to sell its supplies, decorations, and equipment on August 31.
