Longtime Kokomo Eatery Shuts Down

Posted: Updated:

Unpaid taxes have forced a Kokomo restaurant to close. Ducky's Restaurant was shut down by the Indiana Department of Revenue this week, roughly two months after it was featured on the Food Network's "Restaurant Impossible." The Kokomo Tribune reports two potential buyers are lined up for the restaurant that has been around for nearly 40 years. Owner Bill Duncan tells the newspaper the business owes around $200,000 in unpaid taxes.

It also says the restaurant has been trying to recover from a couple of major setbacks.

They include the death of the founder, Donald "Ducky" Duncan and the decision to go smoke free months before a city ordinance took effect in 2006.
