BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Papa Gino’s announced the company will be closing seven locations in New England.
The affected locations are in Melrose, Seabrook, Wilbraham, Framingham on Worcester Road and Cochituate Road, Brockton on Crescent Street, and Natick on Worcester Road.
Papa Gino’s CEO Bill Van Epps made the announcement on the company’s Facebook page.
“We do not anticipate any additional closings,” Van Epps said. “We are doing everything we can to take care of the managers and team members at these locations, including transfers to other Papa Gino’s locations or placement assistance to help them find new jobs. We want to hold onto as many of our people as we can and help the rest of them quickly land on their feet.”
In the Facebook post, Van Epps said that Papa Gino’s is now a part of new company, New England Authentic Eats.
In November of 2018, the parent company that owned Papa Gino’s filed for bankruptcy. In early November, 95 Papa Gino’s restaurants suddenly closed in New England.
