Hoagie sandwich chain Taylor Gourmet will close all 19 of its outlets largely due to a decline in sales after its co-founder attended an event last year led by President Donald Trump, according to Washingtonian.

Nobody told us.
They screwed up. Chick-fil-a can tell you that.
Or it really wasn’t a gourmet sandwich?
He should have changed the name to MAGA Sandwiches
And opened them up in the south and midwest, guy would be a billionaire by now
I call bs on this story. Mismanagement is a more likely cause...
Yes, story is fake news.
Yahoo is pretty much nothing but propaganda for the left these days. So, you’re probably correct.
I’d almost approve a bail-out for that guy, considering the circumstances.
Too much time glad-handing politicians; not enough time fine-tunning his business!
Or ANY days!
This is BS. More MSM lies. No doubt that this chain was going down no matter what.
Yahoo uses a LOT of Huff Po. They’re also “partners” with Business Insider. Big surprise.
Don’t discount this story. In Portland, Oregon a meetup group supporting Trump had a first meeting. One of the participants invited those who attended it to a gathering at their restaurant. At the gathering others in the restaurant overheard the pro Trump talk, went on social media and began to give negative reviews of the restaurant, threats were made against the owner. Long story short the owner left the business and had to hide. The pro-Trump meetup folded.
It was vicious and had the wanted results by the leftist in Portland.
I like that! “Gimme a MAGA, extra salami, hold the mayo.”
I think this is propaganda, the sandwiches probably sucked or they were overpriced.
Quality sells as evidenced by Chick-fil-a.
They are even expanding into liberal cities where the politicians oppose them publicly.
I was going to say it could be for real based on this line;
“Seventeen locations are in D.C. and surrounding areas and two more are in Chicago.”
But then I went to the Washingtonian and saw;
“How did we get here? Taylor Gourmets official line is that its rapid expansion may have been too much, too fast. Patten told the Washington Business Journal last week that Taylor Gourmet stores were still profitable, but he was considering closing three locations. He blamed changes in the fast-casual world and increased competition driving up real estate prices. He said the problem was that some of the stores had more square footage than they needed.
However, three people familiar with the company say sales began to decline after owner Patten met with President Donald Trump at a small business roundtable at the White House in January 2017.”
>>>However, three people familiar<<<
Ding Ding Ding, we have fakenews.
“the sandwiches probably sucked or they were overpriced.”
If that’s the case, how on Earth is Jimmy John’s still in business?
DC went 90% for ILLary. Given that,I can believe that politics was a key factor.I know that I boycott various companies because of politics.
