CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - A popular Cedar Rapids restaurant known for its burgers has permanently closed all its locations.

Saucy Focaccia locations in Cedar Rapids and its Breakfast Bar location have closed permanently.

In a Facebook post, restaurant staff said the Edgewood Road SW location closed first to combine staff at the Fountains Drive NE location. However, that location only lasted a couple more weeks before closing permanently last Sunday. The restaurant’s Facebook pages and website have since been removed.

“After 10 years we are devastated to announce the closure of our restaurants, Saucy Focaccia and The Breakfast Bar,” the owners told TV9 in a statement. “The increase in operating costs, in addition to the downturn of the economy forced this decision. Our business was a family venture and so deeply impacts all of us. We are very proud of what we’ve accomplished over the years. We thank our employees and loyal customers for supporting our business over the years.”

Saucy Focaccia was listed among the Iowa Beef Industry Council and the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association’s best burgers in Iowa for multiple years.
