Springfield restaurant closes after 1 year


A Krispy Krunchy Chicken location at 1929 E. Main St. in Springfield has closed.

The restaurant opened last year in the former Long John Silver’s/A&W location on East Main Street. Information from the Clark County Auditor’s Office showed the property is owned by Vouli Partners LLC, but that entity couldn’t be reached for comment.
