26 Burger King locations closing in Michigan; 400 workers to be laid off: See list of closures

• USA Today

The move is resulting in more than 400 job losses, including general managers, shift managers, and team members. 

EYM King of Michigan, based in Irving, Texas, the franchisee that owns the restaurants, informed the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity on March 22 of the layoffs.

The closings are due to "unforeseen business circumstances" and failure to reach an agreement with Burger King Corp., according to a WARN notice sent to Michigan's labor department.
