Ryan Braun Loses Restaurant Deal

Brewers_ryan_braun_2013Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun, who in July accepted a 65-game suspension for his ties to the Biogenesis performance-enhancing drug scandal, still is seeing fallout from corporate America.

On Thursday, SURG Restaurant Group, the company that manages restaurants in Wisconsin affiliated with Braun, announced it will sever its relationship with him.

“We’ve appreciated the relationship we had with Ryan over the last several years, and the entire SURG family wishes him success in the future,” Michael Polaski, CEO and co-owner of SURG, said in a statement.

The group had a licensing deal with Braun for an Italian restaurant called Ryan Braun’s Graffito Restaurant. SURG said it will keep the restaurant open until the end of the year “to honor its pre-existing obligations to its customers and employees.”
