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.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another unseasonably warm day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Some areas could even see temperatures well into the 70s. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning. We won't see any rain from this front, but it will cool temperatures into the low 40s by Saturday morning.
