The new owners of Fat Boys restaurant in downtown Louisiana identified themselves Saturday evening as Richie Holland and Melissa Malcom.

The restaurant’s owners announced Thursday that they would be closing the restaurant at 123 S. Third St. as it transitioned to new—but still local—ownership. At the time, people related to the transaction declined to identify the restaurant’s new owners.
