Employees were surprised to find shuttered pizzerias in Greater Boston, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island.

After the startling news on Sunday that Papa Gino's and D'Angelo Grilled Sandwiches closed several of its stores over the weekend, PGHC Holdings, Inc., the Dedham-based parent company of both popular chains, announced in a press release on Monday morning that it had filed petitions for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

The company hasn't provided a full list of the closures.

None of the Framingham Papa Gino's locations closed - Route 9 and Route 30. Patrons reported some of those restaurants also had signs saying they were permanently closed Sunday.

Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui is expected to accompany Kim Yong Chol , who is likely to visit NY for talks with U.S. As a concession to Pyongyang, President Donald Trump indefinitely suspended regular U.S.

Around 1,100 employees are affected, but the company hopes to move as many as possible to the 178 restaurants and franchise locations that continue to operate around New England, according to a spokesman for Papa Gino's Holdings Corporation. As of Sunday, the location map feature lists 97 stores, including 78 in MA. "I was supposed to work 5 to close".

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. "I was told to reapply to other locations". In 1968, it changed its name, and began expanding around Boston and beyond.

The company also has plans to open additional restaurants throughout New England and enhance online ordering capabilities at all locations. The sit-down pizzerias hosted many a pizza-fueled birthday party, and some schoolchildren-like myself at Berlin Memorial School-grew up eating the thin-crust pies every week in the cafeteria as part of a prolific school lunch program.
