Coyote Canyon may close following Owner/Operator change

Coyote Canyon owner and operator Jim Johanek, who also owns Jimmy Jo’s BBQ in Bourbonnais, announced this afternoon Coyote Canyon will not re-open in Bourbonnais under his operation.

The restaurant has been in business at 1359 Locke Dr in Bourbonnais since 2002.

The longtime area businessman left room for hope in his announcement, saying he’s in negotiations with the parent company to transfer ownership and allow them to operate the restaurant.

“I am however in negotiations with our parent company to either transfer ownership or enter into a lease agreement to have them operate. These negotiations are in the beginning stages, and we will keep you posted.” Johanek said Tuesday afternoon in a Facebook announcement.

No word on when a possible announcement will be made on the change and or closure of the Coyote Canyon Bradley location.

Johanke said without major conceptual changes, an all you can eat restaurant is an uncertainty in a post-pandemic world. “We appreciate the hard work and dedication of our great Coyote team of employees, and our thoughts and prayers are with each of them at this difficult time,” Johnake said.
