By the middle of April, the same limited liability company will control more than two dozen Burger King locations in Michigan.
In a WARN ie, Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification, letter of notice that was issued, EYM King of Michigan LLC stated that it expects to complete 26 closures, that began more than a week ago. That is “on or about” April 15 and will ultimately result in the layoff of 424 employees.
The WARN notice issued by the company was posted on the website of the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity on March 22. The affected Burger King restaurants are in Detroit, as well as nearby cities like Livonia, Southfield, Royal Oak, and Flint, according to a display that was included with the notice.
EYM stated in the notice that it was closing Burger King due to “unseen firm situations and unable to reach a resolution.” The identity of those was not disclosed to FOX Business by a representative of the company.
In parent organization Eatery Brands Global’s (RBI) most recent 10-K report recorded with the Protections and Trade Commission, the organization said there were in excess of 19,700 Burger Lord cafés all over the planet toward the finish of 2022. According to RBI’s website, nearly all Burger Kings are “owned and operated by independent franchisees.”
