JimmyJacks Closes Its Doors

Bedford Avenue burger joint makes sudden Facebook announcement regarding closure.

Through a peer-to-peer lending site, brothers/owners Dan and Dave Morris raised money from more than 100 people in early 2010 to open JimmyJacks' doors. Just two years later, the pair announced that they have closed them for the last time.

The Bedford Avenue burger joint made the following announcement on their Facebook page Tuesday night:

Hi everyone, we are sorry to say that JimmyJacks has closed its doors for the last time tonight. We'd like to thank all our great customers who supported us over the last couple of years. We'll miss you and wish you the best.

A saddened Dave Morris told Patch he and his brother are grateful to the community for their support and loyalty.

"We were so honored to be part of the Bellmore community," he added.

JimmyJacks owners and staff embedded themselves in the community, always giving back through charity and hosting fundraisers for local groups.

"We felt that was an important part of our mission," he said.

The decision, while made with heavy hearts Dave said, was not due to a lack of success. Dave and Dan always told their young staff that 'family comes first' when it came to requesting days off and realized it was time to take their own advice.

"We are going out on top and there's nothing wrong with that. I have no regrets," Dave added.

Something's not right here. If it was a matter of being successful but wanting to move on, or stay with family, you dont shut your doors..you sell the business.

It's just a shame that a local business can't survive locally. Our town was made up of these type businesses. I remember the bakery that stood in the same spot..... Support your local businesses and don't be afraid to tell them what you want and need. Thye will only benefit from your feedeback.
