Watertown's Upper Crust Closed for Now, Possibly for Good

The Upper Crust in Watertown has closed its doors, and it is not clear whether it is just temporary or permanent.

The Boston Globe reports that several locations of the pizzeria chain have shut down, temporarily at least. 

The Globe called the Upper Crust on Main Street in Watertown and an employee said that the restaurant was closed and that the company is undergoing reorganization and "we are closed for at least next couple of days."

Upper Crust has been facing financial difficulties, and in September the company defaulted on a TD Bank loan. Company officials filed for bankruptcy protection.

The company's troubles also include a U.S. Department of Labor ruling that they owed employees back overtime pay.
