Sad news for burger lovers in Detroit, Michigan, with the announcement today that 12 Burger King stores in the city will soon be closing.

EYM King of Michigan, a business that owns 26 Burger King franchises in Michigan, including twelve in Detroit, has decided to close all of its locations in the state by April 15.

A WARN notice has been filed with Michigan's Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity stating the closures are due to "unforeseen business circumstances."

This will result in the loss of 424 jobs, including general managers and shift managers. Some of the stores have already closed.

These closures are the latest to impact Detroit and Michigan as stores close across the state. Businesses, including Bed Bath and Beyond, Tuesday Morning, and Party City, have recently announced they will be closing stores in the region.
