Last Call: Restaurant Chains Closing Locations by 2020
Friendly’s started out as a singular “Friendly” in Massachusetts in 1935 and soley sold ice cream to its loyal customers. It eventually added a burger to its menu, and just five years later became a family-friendly diner. There was once 500 Friendly’s locations scattered around America, but by the start of 2019, there were only 200 left. Back in April, the CEO announced that a further 23 locations would lose their Friendly’s in the coming months. BRB, stocking up on those milkshakes before they’re gone forever.
