Sbarro Is Closing 155 Stores

Sbarro is going to close 155 stores in an attempt to become more profitable.

The pizza chain most commonly seen in mall food courts is still trying to recover from its 2011 bankruptcy, reports Lauren Coleman-Lochner at Bloomberg News.

“The move is part of a broader plan to boost financial performance under a new management team,” Lochner writes.

The closures are all company-owned stores in North America, not franchises, according to Bloomberg.

Sbarro has more than 800 stores total.
