Business Bites: Rikki’s has closed

Rikki’s Bar and Restaurant at 1220 9th St. S. has closed.

The restaurant posted to its Facebook page Wednesday morning that it had closed.

“Rikki’s would like to thank Great Falls and all of our customers for the last 15 years. It has sincerely been our pleasure and privilege serving you,” according to the post.

The restaurant has been listed for sale for years and is currently listed for $1.2 million.

Ryan Pachek is the listing agent and a part owner of the business. His sister Rachel Shane ran the restaurant.

The restaurant didn’t sell and Pachek said they’re looking to lease the space.

“Whether it’s to another restaurant, retail or office space is to be determined. We have enjoyed the restaurant business very much but have decided to close the doors and pursue other avenues,” Pachek told The Electric.

According to the listing on Century 21, the turn-key business is about 6,260 square feet of interior space on a 0.689 acre lot.
