The Whole Hog Cafe at 14524 Cantrell Road, which only opened In early September, closed Tuesday.
Co-owner Chris Maynes says it wasn’t doing especially well, but on top of that, the highly praised chicken wings and fries it was selling were actually pulling customers away from its other west Little Rock branch, in the Rock Creek Plaza shopping center, 12111 W. Markham St. at Bowman Road.
The silver lining is that Whole Hog will move the equipment it has been using to make fries and wings to that location over the next month, Maynes says. Among other things, it involves installing a vent-a-hood with fire suppression system the kitchen there doesn’t currently have.
