Amid Papa Gino's Closures, Company Announces Bankruptcy And Plans To Sell

BROCKTON MA.- NOVEMBER 4 A closed Papa Gino's Pizzeria is seen on North Montello Street in Brockton Massachusetts

The company that owns Papa Gino's pizza parlor and D'Angelo sandwich shop chains announced Monday it has closed about 95 locations throughout New England, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and reached an agreement to sell the business.

PGHC Holdings says the move would "significantly strengthen the chains' financial resources", allowing for the ability to remodel and modernize their 141 restaurants in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and CT.

The restaurant became kown as Papa Gino's in 1968.

The company hasn't provided a full list of the closures and has not yet responded to a WBZ-TV request for comment. In the Boston area, Arlington, Medford, Malden, Woburn, and Brockton locations have also shuttered; WPRI Eyewitness News reports four Rhode Island restaurants are closed, too.

Yesterday, its advertised locations plummeted to 97 without explanation. The Lowell Sun interviewed a manager-in-training, who arrived on Sunday evening for his second-ever shift at the Lowell restaurant to find the door locked. "They didn't inform me or anything", Shadane Richards told the newspaper. Though, again, it's yet unclear how many locations will be shut down.

So. if you're yearning for the "all you can eat" pasta and pizza feast, head on down to your Cape Cod Papa Gino's store Monday through Wednesday.

"These were hard decisions but decisions we believe were absolutely necessary to allow Papa Gino's and D'Angelo Grilled Sandwiches to continue serving New England now and for years to come", CEO Corey Wendland said in the statement.

The chain has locations throughout New England.
