Fans and loyal customers of Papa Gino's are bidding farewell to 7 more locations throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire. This, after close to one hundred locations of Papa Gino's and D'Angelo's were shut down this past November. 

Massachusetts-based Papa Gino's announced that six locations in the Bay State have closed (Melrose, Wilbraham, Brockton, Natick and two locations in Framingham) and one in Seabrook New Hampshire.

Papa Gino's posted a message to their customers and employees on their social media page that read in part: 'Papa Gino’s is now part of a newly formed company called New England Authentic Eats. We have seen the love and loyalty New Englanders have for this brand and it is the mission of our new company to position Papa Gino’s for future growth and invest significantly in that future, with a focus on delivering an excellent experience and fan-favorite foods for our guests.'

Bill Van Epps, CEO of New England Authentic Eats, which is the new parent company of Papa Gino’s and D’Angelo Grilled Sandwiches signed the Facebook message (that you can read below). Van Epps previously worked for Papa John's.
