COLORADO, USA — Rubio's Coastal Grill will close 12 locations, including all six of its restaurants in Colorado, due to the business impact of COVID-19.

The fast casual Mexican food restaurant chain had operated locations in Denver, Lakewood, Littleton, Aurora, Highlands Ranch and Broomfield.

"Unfortunately, due to the business impact of COVID-19, Rubio’s has made the difficult decision to close 12 locations in the Colorado and Florida markets, and is in the process of formalizing these closures now," said a statement provided to 9NEWS by Rubio's Coastal Grill.

"Rubio’s will continue to focus on their core markets - California, Arizona and Nevada."

Last month Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes announced they would not survive the impact of the pandemic.

That restaurant chain is closing its 97 buffet-style restaurants, including its locations in Aurora, Lone Tree, Littleton and Westminster.
