A Massive Coffee Chain Has Now Closed A Flagship Location

A massive coffee chain has now closed a flagship location citing major safety concerns a month after a temporary shutdown.

Multiple violent incidents had occurred around Starbucks flagship store in Winnipeg, Canada, months before the closure was announced.

Various assaults were reported around the area, including a 56-year-old man being attacked a few steps from the entrance.

On May 5, the company announced that it was shutting down on a temporary basis, and gave no explicit reason why.

However, if baristas were asked about the closure, they were trained to say that it was to protect the employee and customer experience, according to The Winnipeg Free Press.

However, after a month, Starbucks announced that the store would not be returning to the public.

“I can confirm after careful evaluation the Osborne Village store will remain closed,” Leanna Rizzi, a company spokesperson, told CBC News.

Starbucks placed a note on the door of its location, following the news of the closure.

“We would like to thank you for being part of our store community; you are the heart of who we are at Starbucks,” the statement read.

“We are very thankful to have played a role in your daily routine and that you have shared these moments of your life with us.”

Rizzi explained that the coffee shop is constantly evaluating its locations to see how it could create “the best Starbucks experience.”

When looking at this location, she admitted that there were several reasons they could shut down stores, including safety issues.

“There are several factors we consider when evaluating our store portfolio, and the personal safety and security of our partners is of utmost importance to us and is always something we consider when reviewing the experience in our stores,” the email said.

Since the closure, employees have been transferred to different locations around the area.

An unexpected restaurant now abruptly closes 7 locations in one state after revealing plans to shutter a total of 36.

TGI Fridays is closing a total of seven restaurants in one state as part of the company’s ongoing growth strategy.

This comes after the chain abruptly closed 36 locations across 12 states in at the beginning of the year, per The-Sun.

The restaurant chain will pull the plug on seven locations across the state of New Jersey in the coming weeks.

Today, Fridays will welcome in famished diners at its location in Brick for the final time.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Weldon Spangler, CEO of TGI Fridays earlier this week.

“We are at the helm of a pivotal moment that will allow us to explore boundless advancement, expansion, and innovation to keep delivering ‘That Fridays Feeling’ that our fans know and love.”

Before the closures, TGI Fridays had about 270 US locations, according to the company’s website.

“As part of the store closures, TGI Fridays is offering more than 1,000 transfer opportunities, which represents over 80% of total impacted employees,” the company previously said in a statement.

“Our top priority has always been delivering a superior experience for each and every TGI Fridays guest, and we’ve identified opportunities to optimize and streamline our operations to ensure we are best positioned to meet – and exceed – on that brand promise,” said Ray Risley, US president and chief operating officer, in the release.

Eight other locations were sold to former CEO Ray Blanchette, a longtime stakeholder who will acquire the previously corporate-owned restaurants.

The sale comes as major changes have been made to the brand’s leadership, including the news of Weldon Spangler being made CEO.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Spangler in a statement.
