Going Once, Going Twice: Upper Crust Locations Sold
If you live in Greater Boston and like pizza, chances are you've had a slice at Upper Crust. What appeared to be a franchise on the rise filed for bankruptcy protection in October after ownership disputes, and allegations of exploitation by employees.
Ten of the Upper Crust locations in Greater Boston went on the auction block on Wednesday- and one of the winning bidders was the attorney who filed a class-action suit against the chain for allegedly seizing back wages from employees. Boston Public Radio spoke with attorney Shannon Liss-Riordan on Thursday.
