Boston-based Upper Crust has closed 10 of its 17 restaurants in Massachusetts and Washington, D.C., as is navigates through bankruptcy.
According to the Boston Herald, the company is trying to find a buyer. Mark G. DeGiacomo, the chain's bankruptcy trustee, told the publication that the company is hoping for a cash flow of about $120,000, which would be enough to get the restaurants running again.
