Rumours that Utah’s iconic The Training Table restaurant is returning after six years are spreading fast.

Now, a cryptic message on their website is teasing their return, and many Twitter users are discussing the same.

The website has the restaurant’s logo and a message that reads, “Tasty things coming soon…” with a timer saying 78 Days, 12 hours, at the time of writing (July 21). The countdown should come to an end on October 22, 2022.

On seeing the countdown and the message on the website, fans of the popular restaurant, which shut its doors back in 2016, think it’s set to reopen again.

They reportedly closed due to a lawsuit

After nearly 40 long and successful years in business, The Training Table closed its restaurants in all five locations: Salt Lake City, Holladay, Layton, Riverton and Sandy.

Fox 13 reports that the locations were shut after lawsuits were filed among family members.

The CEO and president of the business, Stephanie Chard, filed the original lawsuit against her dad, Kent, who founded the restaurant chain in 1977.

Stephanie sought damages for the loss of “past, present and future business opportunities.”

Kent filed a countersuit accusing his daughter of causing him “extreme mental distress, humiliation, anguish, and emotional and physical injuries, as well as economic losses.”
