Family-owned Suney’s Pub and Family Restaurant is closing after 52 years in business, the owners announced in a Facebook post on Thursday.

The Chandler Street establishment in Worcester was well-known for its fish and chips, a staple among religious communities who don’t eat meat on Fridays during lent or year-round.

Suney Kachadoorian, who died in 2001, opened the pub in 1970. He was a deacon at The Armenian Church of Our Saviour in Worcester.  The pub has been managed most recently by Suney’s son, Dan Kachadoorian.

“After 52 years in business, our family has decided to close Suney’s Pub. If you worked for us over the years, thank you. Your dedication to our family and customers is unmatched. If you have been a customer over those years, we cannot express our gratitude for you,” the Kachadoorians wrote in the Facebook post.

The property was sold for $1.25 million by Chandler Mason Realty Trust, with Dan Kachadoorian as trustee to Daniel Yarnie in a deal that closed on Thursday, according to the Worcester District Registry of Deeds.

As of Friday, Google listed Suney’s as permanently closed.
