One of the largest and busiest restaurants in the City will be closing it’s doors at the end of the month. Canyon’s, which has locations in Redmond, Bothell and Monroe as well, will be closing it’s Mountlake Terrace location after 12 years in the City.
Mazatlan, a Mexican restaurant in Kenmore, recently lost it’s lease after 30 years in the same location. Mazatlan approached the owner of Canyon’s, Scott Perry, with an interest in purchasing the Mountlake Terrace location. After some negotiations, they came to a mutually beneficial deal that Perry says was too good to refuse. Mazatlan will be taking over the property beginning July 1st.
The Mountlake Terrace location was the second of the four locations for Canyon’s. In 1998 Canyon’s opened in what was previously a soup and salad restaurant called Zoopa.
In a letter posted at Canyon’s, owner Scott Perry thanks the MLT community for the past 12 years:
Owner and founder Scott Perry I would personally like to thank all of you for your business over the last 12 years because without you, we would not have had the opportunity to exist. During this time Canyon’s has made thousands of new friends and created lasting memories for so many. I also believe we have positively impacted the local community in many ways during our years of operation. This includes creaeting hope and opportunity by employing hundreds of local residents, giving support to countless community events at local schhools, churches, food banks, civi organizations and other charitable organizations, as well as hosting hundreds of “Dine Out” fund raising events. All in all it has been a great experience doing business in Mountlake Terrace.
