NASHVILLE, Tenn. – At least one local "Jack In The Box" will be among 40 stores closing nationwide.
"Jack in the Box" is scrambling to close 40 restaurants by October 3 in seven states in the Southeast, including Texas.
A couple of the employees at the "Jack In the Box" on South Gallatin Road said they were notified on Tuesday that the store would close at 1 a.m. Wednesday night.
The reason is that the stores are under-performing, according to a statement from the company.
"They're angry, upset. Some of them are single mothers. I mean, we need our job," said worker Tierra Mason. "I'm a single parent and we have other single mothers that are up here working hard. And we don't know what we're going to do. It's hard to find a job these days."
