The Pie Pan Restaurant & Bakery in Evansville, Indiana, is temporarily closing its doors due to staffing issues.

In a note posted on the restaurant's door, management says they hope to be back open on Monday, Aug. 2, for regular business hours.

The restaurant's assistant manager, Alysha Camp, says the restaurant is so short-staffed that all of its employees are working open-to-close seven days a week, prompting the temporary closure.

She told 44News that she's absolutely heartbroken over the temporary closure.

"When we have to turn people away it's heartbreaking," Camp said. "We have people who depend on us for breakfast, lunch, and dinner - this is the only place they eat. So it's very heartbreaking."

Camp says the restaurant is currently hiring for all positions, including server, prep, line cook, dish washer, host, and more. "We're looking to hire upwards of 10 people as soon as possible," she said.

The restaurant says that updates will be posted on its social media pages.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
