Restaurant Chain Goes Bankrupt, Expels Diners Mid-Meal [VIDEO]

KOMO.com

When Marie Callender’s declared bankruptcy this week, they weren’t kidding around.

The chain shut the doors on 64 of its 600 restaurants around the country, and shut them with such haste that anybody who happened to be enjoying one of its signature homestyle meals in one of the doomed locations was told to put down their fork and exit the premises.

According to KOMO news in Seattle, a birthday party of 25, which had rented out the back room of Marie Callender’s shuttered Northgate, Washington location, was among those unceremoniously told that its meal was over.

Of course the biggest losers here are Marie Callender’s employees, who were completely blindsided by this loss of their livelihood.

Check out KOMO’s report on Marie Callender’s odd corporate strategy below.
