Downtown restaurant Paul Paul's House of Foods announced its decision to shut down at the end of the month on Facebook. Owner Paul Harper posted to the restaurant's Facebook page.

Harper cited the end of the lease as his reason for closing the physical location. He does plan on reopening the House of Foods in a physical location when he finds a new venue. In the meantime, Harper will operate his restaurant out of a food truck starting in March. The hours and location of the food truck will be updated regularly at the Paul Paul's House of Foods Facebook

"Paul Paul's will always be open and I will always feed Laramie, no matter the circumstances." said Harper when reached for comment.
