The home of the Texas-shaped waffle in Longview is closing its doors.
According to our newspaper partner the Longview News-Journal, the Waffle Shoppes of Texas, often referred to only as “Waffle Shop,” will be closing Oct. 23, according to an advertisement Wednesday in the Longview News-Journal. The business is at the corner of Marshall Avenue and Spur 63.
Dean Holbrook and Erin Smith thank customers for 40 great years.
“We will miss our loyal customers and the friends we have made along the way, but decided it is time to enjoy our family,” the ad reads.
An announcement that reads “ground lease available” has been posted on the business’ trademark sign at the busy Longview intersection.
