Jason’s Deli leaving Indianapolis-area market

Texas-based Jason’s Deli is closing its only two Indianapolis-area stores by the end of the day Monday, leaving the chain’s Evansville location as its only Indiana store.

Both the Indianapolis store at 4026 E. 82nd St. and the Fishers store at 11621 Fishers Station Drive are closing, employees at those locations said Monday. The Indianapolis location opened in 2010 and the Fishers location opened in 2011.

A phone message with Jason’s Deli’s corporate office in Beaumont, Texas, was not immediately returned.

Jason’s Deli formerly operated a restaurant at Bankers Life Fieldhouse downtown, but that location closed in June 2018 after less than a year in operation. The Pacers reconfigured that space to expand its Pacers Team Store.

The first Jason’s Deli opened in Beaumont in 1976. The chain, whose menu includes sandwiches, soups, pasta and a salad bar, currently has 275 locations in 28 states.

  1. Hate this because I feel they are one of the best options out there. However with their limited presence on just the northside it hurt them. because there are so many other options in the immediate area. Maybe a east or westside location would have helped. McAlister’s and Jimmy John and Penn Station are about the only true options on eastside and there are even worse choses on westside.
    Were these franchises or company owned stores?
