Two Kansas Metropolis space places of The Huge Biscuit closed abruptly over the weekend, leaving an estimated 60 staff out of a job earlier than the Thanksgiving vacation.
The eating places are at 16506 E. U.S. Freeway 40 in Independence and 530 N.W. Freeway 7 in Blue Springs.
These have been the primary two places of the native breakfast-and-lunch chain, which was based in 2000 by Dan Gerson. In 2010, Gerson offered the corporate, which has since expanded to incorporate two dozen places in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and, quickly, Arkansas.
However he saved possession of the Blue Springs and Independence places. Gerson died in September, and staff say his son Luke Gerson took over operations of these Huge Biscuit eating places.
“They fired our basic supervisor and made her inform us we have now no job,” stated Silvia Sarmiento, who labored on the Independence location. “No ‘Thanks in your time,’ no clarification on learn how to reapply, nothing. Simply because it’s widespread for corporations to put individuals off doesn’t imply (the way in which they did this) was proper.”
The Star was unable to succeed in the Gerson household.
Chad Offerdahl, president of The Huge Biscuit (which is now primarily based in Overland Park), informed The Star that although they don’t personal the 2 closed places, Huge Biscuit is “working diligently with the Gerson household on choices to reopen these two shops.”
He added, “We’ve knowledgeable the Gerson household that they need to be at liberty to encourage their former staff to use for positions with The Huge Biscuit corporations.”
