Around 1,100 employees are affected, but the company hopes to move as many as possible to the 178 restaurants and franchise locations that continue to operate around New England, according to a spokesman for Papa Gino's Holdings Corporation.

Employees at several remaining Papa Gino's referred phone calls from a Boston.com reporter to the corporate office, which did not immediately respond to requests for comment. 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.

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. "They didn't inform me or anything", Shadane Richards told the newspaper. The name was changed in 1968.

D'Angelo Grilled Sandwiches was founded as Ma Riva's Sub Shop in Dedham in 1967.
