Restaurant Chain Now Makes A Surprising Closure in New Jersey

A restaurant chain now makes a surprising closure in New Jersey after the establishment is reportedly to be replaced.

A Facebook user shared the grim news on the platform about the impending closure of a local Burger King establishment.

“I would let everyone know that Burger King is closing Sunday is their [sic] last day in Franklin NJ,” user Dylan Musella posted.

He added in a comment to his own post that the chain will be replaced by a “chicken pizza place.”

In reaction to his post, several people replied with dismay at the unofficial announcement.

“So sad,” wrote one person.

“Yep no more whopper jr with cheese for me too,” another wrote, adding that he could also relate to the news.

“Rt46 little falls closed too.

“So now I am an [sic] Arby’s guy,” the comment concluded.

When looking up both of these locations on Google, each is flagged with a “Permanently Closed” banner.

Not even Burger King is immune to restaurant closures, reports The US Sun.

Burger King operated and franchised a total of 19,789 restaurants worldwide in 2022.

The vast majority of these, 19,739, were franchised.

Only 50 units remain company-operated as more and more were replaced with franchised stores over the past ten years, per Statista.

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.
