A Giant Restaurant Now Makes An Unexpected Closure in Kentucky

A giant restaurant now makes an unexpected closure in Kentucky after shuttering three other locations in the state, sources report.

Frisch’s Big Boy is a breakfast and burger chain that has closed three other locations in Kentucky, reports The US Sun.

Now the restaurant on Fifth Street in Covington, Kentucky, is closing on Sunday.

The following restaurant locations closed in Kentucky earlier this year:

  • 4645 Spring Grove Avenue, Spring Grove Village.
  • 1575 W. Galbraith Road, North College Hill.
  • 4016 Dixie Highway, Erlanger.


However, another location in Covington remains open for fans on Kyles Lane.

A sign on the front door read, “This restaurant is permanently closed. Please visit us at another Frisch’s Big Boy.”

The U.S. Sun says it reached out to Frisch’s Big Boy for more information.

The chain was founded by Dave Frisch in 1939, and the “big boy” statues that greet customers at each location have become fast-food icons.

The restaurant famously serves breakfast all day, including the fan-favorite Big Boy’s Big Breakfast with eggs, pancakes, hashbrowns, and Texas Toast.

According to WARN data, the following businesses will shutter or lay off employees in Kentucky this year:

  • Quanex Building Products. 140 job cuts by 6/7.
  • GUESS Distribution Center. 200 job cuts by 5/6.
  • Pride Mine (formerly Survant Mine). 230 job cuts by 4/29.
  • Wolverine Worldwide 502. 150 job cuts by 5/3.
  • Piston Automotive. 52 job cuts by 4/19.

An iconic business in California now makes an unexpected closure of all of its 62 locations for good, disappointing workers and customers.

With the increase of minimum wage for fast food workers in California, came the closure of a beloved ice cream store, reports The-Sun.

On April 1, a Fosters Freeze location in Lemoore, California — about three hours north of Los Angeles — shut down.

That happened to be the same day the new minimum wage, which is now $20 an hour rather than $4, kicked in for fast food workers, reports the outlet.

“Some employees thought that the closure was an April Fool’s joke.”

“I was so caught off guard. We had no type of notice, no type of warning either. I mean the owner had told me Happy Easter,” Assistant General Manager Monica Navarro told Fox affiliate KMPH.

Another former employee had a similar reaction.

“We had gotten a text in the group chat that we were shutting down, and I completely thought it was an April Fools joke,” former employee Jason Boado told the outlet.

However, it was not a joke.

“Last thing I ever wanted was to close down,” Loren Wright, the owner of the Fosters Freeze, told the outlet.

“By Friday night I knew I was most likely not gonna be able to stay open but I didn’t want to ruin their Easter Sunday.”

Navarro drove to the store and was met with Wright handing out final paychecks.

The former assistant manager told the outlet that her boss had blamed the closure on the increase, but he didn’t tell anyone the restaurant would be shutting down.

She was excited about the wage increase but now sees that it could be an issue.

“Please be nice to your fast food workers,” said Navarro.

“They’re going to be getting their hours severely cut running small, small shifts. They’re going to have people yelling at them for the menu increases.”
