Unexpected Closures Now Hit A Popular Florida Restaurant Chain

Unexpected closures now hit a popular Florida restaurant chain after several months of lawsuits and eviction notices.

Boston Market has now closed its eight remaining restaurants in South Florida.

In August, the New Jersey Department of Labor ordered the closure of 27 Boston Market chain locations in the state.

It fined the company almost $2.6 million in back wages, liquidated damages, and administrative damages.

The penalties stem from complaints made by several dozen employees to the department’s Division of Wage and Hour and Contract Compliance.

“For the whole time I was there, we hadn’t gotten paid on time. There were a lot of promises it would get better every paycheck and it would get worse and worse, and when we did get it, we were missing money.

It got to the point that we had garbage lining the whole building, outside the building in our dumpster area, we had moldy food, spoiled food, maggots, flies, mice got into it,” said Jeremy Dukeshire, a former General Manager of a location.

U.S. Food, a supplier to the chain, has also filed a lawsuit claiming that the company owes more than $11.6 million in unpaid bills.

This was followed by a series of evictions at locations across the nation, which has spread to South Florida.

Stores in Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami-Dade counties were closed in November.

The following Boston Market locations in Florida have now shuttered for good:

  • West Commercial Boulevard in Tamarac
  • 50 S. Flamingo Road, Pembroke Pines
  • 3249 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood
  • 330 S. University Drive, Plantation.
  • 9929 S. Military Trail in Boynton Beach
  • 9959 Glades Road in West Boca
  • 1500 S. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale
  • 1787 E. Commercial Blvd in Fort Lauderdale
  • An eviction case is pending over the property at 5815 N. University Drive in Tamarac.

64 bank branches have now filed to close down according to the latest notice from the U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.

During the week between November 12 and 18, a total of 64 bank branches filed to close down for good.

The closures will affect customers of more than 10 well-known banking chains, reports The-Sun.

“PNC Bank, the country’s sixth largest, decided to shutter the most branches during that week.”

“A total of 19 locations were slated to closed for good across eight states from Texas to New Jersey.”

PNC has already closed dozens of branches this year, with chief executive officer William Demchak telling investors in July that the bank is “going to have to take a hard look” at where it can “generate savings.”

Chase filed to close the second-largest amount of branches during the November bloodbath, with 18 locations being slated for closure.

Citizens Bank filed to close eight branches, U.S. Bank filed to shutter seven locations, and Bank of America filed to close five locations.

Meanwhile, Citi Bank slated two branches for closure, and several smaller banks filed to close a single location.

One of the biggest reasons why we’re seeing more bank closures across the country is due to the massive rise of online banking.

The surge of online banking has triggered banks to pivot more towards the digital world, resulting in US bank closures.

Although many Americans enjoy the convenience of online banking, experts have warned that a digital banking industry leaves certain customers vulnerable to improper practices.

A report from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition found that when there are fewer branches in an area, more people use “alternative financial services that open them to unregulated and predatory financial practices.”

Meanwhile, a recent survey by Daily Mail found that 51% of Americans were either “very concerned” or “somewhat concerned” about the closure of bank branches.
