At its peak in 2014, the seafood chain had 139 restaurants across the United States. It now operates just 72 locations, according to its website.
It slowly began closing restaurants as sales problems increased, declining to 130 locations in 2015, and then 112 at the end of 2016.
Employees at a Hampton, Virginia, location showed up for work Tuesday morning to find out the restaurant had been closed.
‘To hear that we shut down, no warning, no nothing…[I] pulled out my computer and immediately started applying,’ an employee told WVEC.
