Papa Gino's has restaurants in Falmouth, Centerville, South Yarmouth and Orleans. It changed its name to Papa Gino's in 1968 and expanded throughout Boston, other parts of MA and Connecticut, Rhode Island and New Hampshire.

Over the weekend, locally-born chain Papa Gino's closed dozens of its locations in New England, including pizzerias in Lowell, Westford, Bedford, Nashua, and Fitchburg, the Lowell Sun reported.

In a Facebook post on Monday, Papa Gino's wrote, "We were overwhelmed to receive the passionate response of our guests who were disappointed by the recent closure of several Papa Gino's restaurants (we were unable to comment on the news until this morning's press release, announcing our impending sale)".

The company said 100 Papa Gino's and 78 D'Angelo Grilled Sandwiches restaurants stay open, and that it hoped to "move certain team members from closed restaurants" to those that will remain open. It then directs callers to for a list of locations.

News of the closings seemed to come as a surprise to the employees.

WBZ also talked with a blindsided employee in Mansfield.

So. if you're yearning for the "all you can eat" pasta and pizza feast, head on down to your Cape Cod Papa Gino's store Monday through Wednesday. In 1968, it changed its name, and began expanding around Boston and beyond.

The chain has locations throughout New England. The sit-down pizzerias hosted many a pizza-fueled birthday party, and some schoolchildren-like myself at Berlin Memorial School-grew up eating the thin-crust pies every week in the cafeteria as part of a prolific school lunch program.
