The Old Spaghetti Factory's last day serving hungry diners will be August 24. 

A company spokesperson confirmed Tuesday that after 25 years at 233 Park Avenue, the popular restaurant is shuttering its doors and plans are already in place to fill the building space. 

"Yes, we are closing our Minneapolis location. Our last day of service will be August 24th, 2019," the spokesperson said. "The closure only applies to our Minneapolis location, our other locations continue to prosper and we are actively looking for new locations.

"In Minneapolis we were operating on a short term lease that was expiring. We have worked together with our landlord on a timeline for our closure and vacating of the space so that future plans for the building may be pursued."

According to the Star Tribune, plans are already in place to fill the soon-to-be vacant venue with the Twin Cities' second location of Pinstripes.

The Chicago-based restaurant already has one Pinstripes in Edina, featuring food, drinks and entertainment, including bocce ball and bowling. 

The Minneapolis location is the only The Old Spaghetti Factory in Minnesota, but the restaurant chain is nationwide with stores in Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, Utah and Washington,
