Back in March, Burger King announced the closure of 26 locations in Michigan including Flint and Metro Detroit. The closure of those locations forced 424 employees to be laid off.

Burger King is now taking things a bit further by announcing the closure of up to 400 locations nationwide by the end of 2023. With that many closures around the country, we can only assume that some will be right here in Michigan...again.
