SALT LAKE CITY — The Training Table, a Utah restaurant chain that has been closed for almost six years, has an active website that’s counting down to something.

The restaurant chain closed its locations in 2016. Its standout feature was a landline telephone next to each table, which customers used to order their meals.

Right now the Training Table’s website is plastered with a cryptic message saying “Tasty things coming soon”.

Just below that message is a countdown clock. As of Thursday, the clock was counting down from 78 days.

Finishing off the vague messaging is a photo of the restaurant’s famous cheese fries.

The Training Table’s official Facebook page had sat dormant since a farewell post in December of 2016. But on Wednesday, the page posted for the first time in almost six years.

The post reads, “We’re still a family-owned business and still very much ‘A Utah Original’! Stay hungry and stay tuned.”

There hasn’t been any official confirmation that the chain is returning to the state, but the website’s countdown and a new Facebook post might indicate things to come.
