So. if you're yearning for the "all you can eat" pasta and pizza feast, head on down to your Cape Cod Papa Gino's store Monday through Wednesday.

"The company regrets having to close these restaurants but believes focusing resources on a core of best-performing restaurants is the responsible approach", Chief Financial Officer Corey Wendland said in a press release.

Many employees found out they were out of a job, when they showed up to a locked door and a sign at their location, including the one in Ashland on Route 126. As of Sunday, the location map feature lists 97 stores, including 78 in MA.

Of 16 Central Massachusetts D'Angelo locations, three are closing: 601 Donald Lynch Blvd.in Marlborough, 195 E. Main St.in Milford and 138 S. Main St.in Milford, according to a comparison of today's website locations list and an archived list from earlier this year. The Boston Globe talked to another who was suddenly out of work after a Quincy location shuttered.

The release said the proposed sale will "significantly strengthen the chains' financial resources, allowing PGHC to remodel and modernize their 141 company-owned restaurants in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and CT; open additional restaurants throughout New England; and enhance its online ordering capabilities at all restaurants".

The restaurant became kown as Papa Gino's in 1968. The company said 178 Papa Gino's and D'Angelo locations remain open. The company also owns D'Angelo Grilled Sandwiches.
