A massive fast food franchisee now files for bankruptcy in Barry, Illinois, baffling employees and customer alike, sources report.

Staff at a Wendy’s location were shocked when they arrived at the store to see its doors were shut, reports The-Sun.

The location in Barry, Illinois, around 30 miles east of Springfield, announced it would close down for good.

The announcement came through the surprised members of staff at the 2 Cieten Plaza branch on January 20, according to My Journal Courier.

This shock closure followed news that the franchisee that owns the location had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in November 2023.

The Starboard Group had leases for around 72 restaurants across the south and midwest in Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, Alabama, and Florida.

This group also operated several other restaurants like 20 Applebee’s and 15 Subways.

Customers took to social media after learning about the news.

“Welp, Wendy’s in Barry is permanently closed,” one Facebook poster said with a crying face emoji.

“I’m gonna miss my chicken sandwiches,” one person responded.

“Oh god I was just thinking about running over there soon,” another person posted.

Another Starboard Group-owned local Wendy’s location in Hannibal, Missouri has also shut its doors.

This location employed around 13 people and one employee shared how she found out.

Abigail Conley, the night manager of the restaurant, said the news was confirmed by the general manager when she arrived for her shift, according to Muddy River News.

“I walked in to do my 5 p.m.-to-midnight shift, and they just said we were closing,” she said.

“I asked if they would be giving us a reason, and they said no.”
