Over the last few years, Jeff Rogers of Rogers Concepts & Consulting in Oklahoma City opened nearly a dozen new restaurants and bars in quick succession.
Now the biggest of them all, the massive Cowboy Ranch in the former Bricktown Events Center, has been closed due to eviction for non-payment of rent. The Facebook and Instagram pages appear to have been deleted after a court ruled this week that the operators were to vacate by 11 AM today (Thursday 12/8).
Also recently closed are The Pig & The Butcher (Britton & May), Steak The Experience (Britton & May), Red Dragon Express (N. May), Chico Blanco (Bricktown), Bloom Nightclub (Bricktown), XO Lounge (Northpark Mall), and Yo! Pablo at Covell and Kelly in Edmond, 33rd and Boulevard in Edmond, Rockwell and NW 122nd as well as the original Yo! Pablo at 6728 N Olie.
In addition, a work stoppage order has been posted at a proposed Yo! Pablo in Mustang due to a lack of building permits. The lone remaining Yo! Pablo in Norman continues to operate.
Previously, Rogers had opened and closed more than a dozen restaurants and bars, mainly in Bricktown.
Left behind are dozens of tax liens and court judgments totaling well over a million dollars.
