Taylor Gourmet’s fall from grace

Popular American fast food chain Taylor Gourmet has abruptly closed all of its locations after private equity firm KarpReilly, who had previously invested US$5 million, turned its back on the business. The food provider’s sales were already suffering after co-founder Casey Patten was seen visiting President Donald Trump, a meeting which led to customer’s boycotting the chain. The abrupt closure resulted in all 19 stores closing after a weekend of service. Taylor Gourmet first made waves in 2012 when former President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden visited the restaurant.
