Looks like you can scrap the Overland Park, Kansas location from the list for good. After over a year of NOTHING happening at the construction hole the developer has just filed for Chap. 11 bankruptcy. It may still happen, but then again, monkeys may fly out of my butt.

I wonder what happened with the previously announced bars, it seems like some of them - for example all UK bars - have disappeared from the list of future locations...

old list:

Anyone have more news on Trader Vic's opening in Kansas City? I'm guessing it's dead in the water by now. So much for getting my hopes up

I'm guessing the recession has squashed a lot of these. Seems odd to me that Trader Vic's would have announced these locations before they were under construction.

It looks like the three English locations have been dropped.

Shame, as Manchester would have been the most 'Tiki' location outside of the West coast with three tiki Bars.

How sad that this American company (is it still?)
is closing locations in America, and has no plans to build
here in the near future.
But does have plans for other locations outside of the USA.

I can only HOPE for CHANGE in the future of this kind of dismissing
Of the need here in the land that Trader Vic's was started, and other American companies
need to try and build our economy.
Sure Americas economy sucks now but it won't get better if this keeps going on.
We can go to these locations while on vacation ( and it looks like that's what they are going for)
but if this keeps up Americans won't be able to aford it.
I would guess that it is much less of a pain to open in other countries as it has
become very hard to do business here, and won't get better for some time now.

Come on Trader Vic's don't forget who brought you to the party.

Sadly, they haven't been an American company for quite some time. I do agree that it would be great for all of us if the US economy was doing better!

Actually the Corporation is still owned and operated by the family. However, all locations, other than the family owned flagship location in Emeryville, are franchises...

Whether locations open or close domestically or internationally is dependent on economics and the vision/passion of the franchisees...
