Penguin Point announced in a Facebook post on Friday afternoon that it will be permanently closing all its remaining restaurant locations on Sunday, Nov. 12.

Those locations include two in Warsaw, and ones in Auburn, Columbia City, North Manchester, and Wabash.

One popular South Bend restaurant on the market, another favorite resurging

A long-time South Bend riverfront restaurant that closed last fall is on the market, while the operator of another popular downtown eatery says customers are coming back after a recent reopening.

The Bucket, owned by the Navarre Hospitality Group since 2021, went up for sale earlier this month for $725,000, said Gage Hudak, vice president of Bradley Company and the commercial real estate broker handling the listing.

After being closed for about 2 1/2 years, Frank's Place was reopened last November by new owner Bhola Singh and is operated by Autumn Kabzinski, 28, a South Bend native.

The two changes reflect the challenges and fluidity of the restaurant business, especially during the COVID pandemic and in its aftermath.
