CHICO, Calif. - A beloved Jamaican restaurant in Chico has announced it will be closing.
The restaurant has been in Chico for nearly nine years. Throughout their time in Chico, they have won the hearts of residents with their tastes of Jamaica.
Sipho’s Jamaican restaurant owner Sipho Merritt made the announcement via Facebook on Tuesday.
