  • BROCKTON MA.- NOVEMBER 4 A sign on the door of a closed Papa Gino's Pizzeria is seen on North Montello Street in Brockton Massachusetts

FOX61 reached out to the Papa Gino's locations in Vernon, Windsor Locks and Waterford and heard a voice recording saying the location was permanently closed.

PGHC Holdings says the move would "significantly strengthen the chains' financial resources", allowing for the ability to remodel and modernize their 141 restaurants in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and CT. A comparison indicates the company eliminated four of its 10 locations in Rhode Island and 37 of its 115 locations in Massachusetts.When you pull up to the Papa Gino's on Reservoir Avenue in Cranston, there is now a sign taped up reading, "This location is now closed".

PGHC Holdings Inc.'s announcement came a day after many employees showed up for work to find the restaurants closed without explanation. Terms weren't disclosed. The release also said that the company filed for protection under Chapter 11 in an effort to maintain operations at the restaurants that were still open while pursuing the sale.

"We are pleased to have reached an agreement that will ensure a long and prosperous future for these iconic New England restaurants", Chief Financial Officer Corey Wendland said.
