Amid Papa Gino's Closures, Company Announces Bankruptcy And Plans To Sell

BROCKTON MA.- NOVEMBER 4 A closed Papa Gino's Pizzeria is seen on North Montello Street in Brockton Massachusetts

It changed its name to Papa Gino's in 1968 and started to expand throughout Boston.

The parent company of the popular New England restaurants Papa Gino's and D'Angelo Sandwiches announced Monday that it has reached an agreement in principle to sell the chains to a Wynnchurch Capital portfolio company after abruptly closing several locations on Sunday.

The company's chief financial officer said the closures, sale, and bankruptcy protections "were absolutely necessary" to keep both the Papa Gino's and D'Angelo's brands alive.

None of the Framingham Papa Gino's locations closed - Route 9 and Route 30.

The website, now lists only 97 locations, for the Dedham-based pizza chain.

The company said 100 Papa Gino's and 78 D'Angelo Grilled Sandwiches restaurants stay open, and that it hoped to "move certain team members from closed restaurants" to those that will remain open. In the Boston area, Arlington, Medford, Malden, Woburn, and Brockton locations have also shuttered; WPRI Eyewitness News reports four Rhode Island restaurants are closed, too. The Lowell Sun interviewed a manager-in-training, who arrived on Sunday evening for his second-ever shift at the Lowell restaurant to find the door locked. Though, again, it's yet unclear how many locations will be shut down.

The company said would still operate 178 locations throughout New England, including 141 company-owned stores.

The first Papa Gino's was in 1961 in East Boston, and was called Piece O' Pizza.

The restaurants that closed will remain closed permanently, but when Wynnchurch Capital takes over the company, it will look into expanding within New England.
