Another Berkshire Friendly’s Restaurant To Close
There are only two remaining Friendly's restaurants in Berkshire County, and one will close on Sunday, according to masslive.com.
The Friendly's in Lee at 145 Housatonic St. is set to shutter it's doors on Sunday.
Each Friendly’s location has about 30 to 50 employees. Typically, the chain tries to find jobs at other nearby Friendly’s for employees at shuttered locations. The Wilbraham-based chain is down to 164 restaurants in 11 states. In 1988, when Hershey Foods sold the chain, there were 850 full-service restaurants in 15 states. -masslive
