Papa Gino's and D'Angelo's franchises have unexpectedly closed their doors in multiple locations across the SouthCoast and beyond.

Stores in Dartmouth, Plymouth, Hyannis, Middleboro, Taunton and Seekonk have all shut down abruptly.

On Sunday, employees of Papa Gino's showed up to work to find a "Closed" sign with no warning. Almost 50 stores in Massachusetts have closed for good.

According to WCVB 5, at least a dozen locally sourced Papa Gino's have been subject to abrupt closing. A sign was taped to the entrance door stating the following:

"This location is now closed, thank you for your patience" -Papa Gino's Pizzeria

A local source also tells Fun 107 that several D'Angelo's locations (which are owned by Papa Gino's) have shut their doors as well.

As of right now, the D'Angelo's storefronts in Plymouth, Hyannis, the Galleria Mall, and Seekonk have all posted the controversial "closed notice" on their doors. A source also tells Fun 107 the South Dartmouth location has closed.

More information on the remaining store closings will be posted as soon as we have it.
