Soul Daddy MOA closes

Jamawn Woods's dream is dead.

Jamawn Woods's dream is dead.

We can't say we're surprised, but, wow, that was quick. America's Next Great Restaurant, Soul Daddy, closed its final location at the Mall of America this week after just two months in business due to poor performance and lackluster food.

The restaurant's two other locations in New York City and LA closed mid-month, with the winning restaurateur, Jamawn Woods, being alerted to the news via email. The MOA's closure comes on the heels of the recent decision to have Woods be more hands-on with the Minnesota location and refining the menu.

The Star Tribune reports that store employees were surprised by the closure and were referred to a Chipotle recruiter for assistance in finding new jobs.
