The winner of NBC's "America's Next Great Restaurant" just got a taste of cold, hard reality ...because all three of his "winning" locations have closed ... just 2 months after they opened.
Jamawn Woods won the first season of the reality show on May 1 -- and his "healthy soul food" chain "Soul Daddy" opened in New York, Los Angeles and Minneapolis the following day.
But the LA and NY locations closed on June 14 -- and yesterday, the final location in the Mall of America shut its doors for good.
The company that owned the restaurant released a statement saying, "This was a difficult decision for us, as we wanted to see Soul Daddy succeed, but the restaurant simply was not performing as we had hoped."
'America's Next Great Restaurant' ... CLOSED!!!!
