Fast-food lovers will have to get their hot meals via a new establishment. One well-known brand plans to abandon the state. The closures began on March 17 and will continue until 26 locations close. Most of the stores were in Detroit and surrounding areas. The shuttering will see 400 workers heading home.
The majority of the locations set for closure are in Detroit. But other areas will get affected. These include Dearborn Heights, Detroit, Ecorse, Ferndale, Flint, Highland Park, Livonia, Royal Oak, Southfield, Walled Lake, Warren, and Whitmore Lake.
A Texas-based franchisee, EYM King of Michigan, owns the restaurants announced for closure. The company informed Michigan's Labor and Economic Opportunity department of its plans via a letter. The reason given was "unforeseen business circumstance." The owners were unable to agree on an operating agreement with Burger King.
All affected Burger King shops will close by April 15.
The closures are part of a wider string of retail and restaurant lockdowns.
Last week, Cracker Barrel announced it would shutter stores in Oregon. The continued effects of the pandemic have owners shutting their doors. Walmart and grocery retailer Zebra will also leave Oregon by March 31. All three brands will do the closures in Portland.
