INDIANAPOLIS (WISH/WLFI) -- An Indiana sports bar chain, with a location in West Lafayette, is filing for bankruptcy. It's a move that will force the chain to close four locations.

Scotty's Brewhouse will lose restaurants in Muncie, Indianapolis, Carmel, and Waco, Texas, all by the end of the month. The West Lafayette location at Wabash Landing is expected to stay open.

The company said it a news release that it hopes to come out stronger from a financial restructuring in the wake of the closures. Customers were surprised to hear it was happening at all.

Scotty's Brewhouses are located across central Indiana and Indianapolis. The company has not said if any other restaurants will close.

WISH-TV reached out to Scotty's to ask how many employees will lose their jobs and how the company will help them. The company has not responded.

“The process we have initiated today will allow us the opportunity to emerge stronger and better position the Company for growth," said Brand President Chris Martin via a press release. "We will close locations that are not profitable by the end of this year. Additionally, the company moving forward will focus its efforts on growing the brand through franchising as well as management agreements. These actions will allow us to provide better service to our guests and strategically expand with new locations in the future.”
