    Shouldnt the Vt restuarant be listed under New England. Vermont is one of the six New England states

    1. Italo says:

      Adam, this is WBZ, they are not known for being very journalistically brilliant and well-written — but I agree!

    2. Wes Welker Fan says:

      There is only one VT cloaing and it’s at the bottom of the New England list.

    3. Louise Rotti says:

      It is listed under NEW ENGLAND…

    4. Barb says:

      Look again, Adam. VT is at the bottom of the New England list.

  2. hopeimwrong says:

    Friendly’s has been slipping for years. I wrote to the corporate office a couple of years ago about issues like cleanliness, slow service, etc in one of the South Shore locations. and they did respond quickly. But things continued to get worse after that. I wrote to them again a few months ago & asked if they were closing or something because they didn’t seem serious about running this location. They again said that they were trying to address the issues, but it was too late to me – I wouldn’t eat there again. The problems I saw in this one location were:
    – Running out of common food items like milk, french fries, misc. ice cream flavors
    – Extremely slow service due to understaffing (one visit we waited over an hour just to get ice cream.)
    – Dirty store (stepping on french fries & naphins when you walked to the tables.)
    – Rodent traps in plain sight
    – High prices for small portions (other local ice cream shops were far more generous)
    It’s sad to see them close – I’ve been going there since I was a little kid – but you could see it coming. No restaraunt chain could be this bad and still survive.
    Good luck to the employees who are now out of work – they shouldn’t have to lose out because they were understaffed and undersupplied at the stores.

    Picky, Picky…Vermont is one of the six NEW ENGLAND states.
    If you read the top it says. CLOSING IN NEW ENGLAND.

  5. Barb says:

    I worked for Friendly Ice Cream in a Division Office for 10 years and this makes me very sad. I was there for their 50th birthday in 1985!
