Senor Frog’s has permanently closed
its doors in Grand Cayman.
The restaurant and souvenir shop
was in its fifth year of operation but a combination of the global economic
crisis and an unusual amount of missed ship calls due to inclement weather made
it unsustainable, said licensee Stefan Baraud.
“The reality is that we couldn’t
continue to sustain losses and had to make the unfortunate decision to close
the doors. It is a direct result of the economic downturn and declining cruise
“What dealt the knock out punch for
us was that we lost 68 cruise calls in the middle of the season with ships

of the brand.
Mr. Baraud did not specify the exact date the closure occurred, but it was believed to have happened within the past week.
