UPDATE, 11 a.m.: Papa Gino's has confirmed to the Boston Globe that it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. It changed its name to Papa Gino's in 1968 and expanded throughout Boston, other parts of MA and Connecticut, Rhode Island and New Hampshire.

The Papa Gino's pizzeria location in Middletown was one of many abruptly shut down by the Massachusetts-based company.

Corey Wendland of Falmouth, Maine, listed in corporation records as Papa Gino's chief financial officer, also could not be reached for comment. In the Boston area, Arlington, Medford, Malden, Woburn, and Brockton locations have also shuttered; WPRI Eyewitness News reports four Rhode Island restaurants are closed, too. As of Sunday, the location map feature lists 97 stores, including 78 in MA.

PGHC Holdings says the move would "significantly strengthen the chains' financial resources", allowing for the ability to remodel and modernize their 141 restaurants in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and CT. "They didn't inform me or anything", Shadane Richards told the newspaper. The Boston Globe talked to another who was suddenly out of work after a Quincy location shuttered.

Employees at several remaining Papa Gino's referred phone calls from a Boston.com reporter to the corporate office, which did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The company also has plans to open additional restaurants throughout New England and enhance online ordering capabilities at all locations.

The restaurants that closed will remain closed permanently, but when Wynnchurch Capital takes over the company, it will look into expanding within New England.
