NEW YORK, N.Y. - Sbarro Inc. says it's closing 155 of its U.S. locations, mostly in mall food courts where traffic has declined.
The Melville, N.Y.-based pizza chain said Wednesday the closures affect 1,400 workers. The move comes as the company is trying to improve its financial performance and update its image under yet another CEO who took over just last year.
Jonathan Dedmon, a representative for Sbarro, says the targeted locations will close Thursday.
"The last day of business is today," he wrote in an email.
