One of my first memories of moving to Pittsfield was my mother-in-law telling me that she just had some lunch at That's A Wrap on Tyler St.

Before moving to 132 Fenn Street, That's A Wrap was located at 496 Tyler Street. It also had locations in Williamstown and Dalton at one point.

The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly not been easy on the restaurant business both locally and nationally. With temporary shutting down of restaurants at the pandemic's beginning to the staffing shortages that they face now, it's just not good.

Patrick's Pub in downtown Pittsfield recently announced that they are for sale, and now another local popular lunch spot is calling it quits.

In a message posted on social media on Tuesday, That's A Wrap announced:

It comes with bittersweet emotion to announce that That’s a Wrap Cafe it’s having its final take. It’s been a challenging year and a half for all, as we know. With rising costs, shortages in staff, and product, it’s been a difficult journey. However, we are excited to grow our other business ventures.

We are super grateful for our loyal, hardworking and selfless staff that have been with us, some for over 13 years. We are also super thankful to those who supported us throughout these years.

Anyone interested in continuing this venture, the cafe is for sale. We are entertaining offers to purchase our cafe. We have creative financing available and would love to see the next passionate food service entrepreneur take the wheel. We can be reached at 413 446 9582 or 413 329 6688. -Jason and Oana Boucher.
