Taylor Gourmet to Close All Locations

Photo of the Silver Spring location of Taylor Gourmet by David Lay. Seventeen locations are in D.C. and surrounding areas and two more are in Chicago. It's uncertain yet what kind of severance package, if any, the employees will get, the spokesman said.

The chain, which has expanded rapidly in recent years, was reported to have received a $5.6 million investment from private equity firm KarpReilly in 2015.

A Taylor Gourmet spokesperson confirmed the closures in the article.

The development came after owner Casey Patten accepted an invitation to attend the White House's small business roundtable. Sales dipped at Taylor Gourmet after Patten met with Trump, according to the person close to the company. Taylor gave a short speech to Trump about how the food industry relies on immigrants and the American-born children of immigrants for staff, and Patten's desire to reduce regulations that would affect his employees.

He even tried diffusing the anger with a billboard in one Washington location which said "Less Politics, More Hoagies".

When she seeks the best performance gear - a competition body suit - she is banned from wearing it... for no articulated reason. Most famously, she was slapped with a two-year probation after threatening to shove a tennis ball down a linewoman's throat.

Patten registered as Republican but after the uproar claimed that he was "apolitical" and didn't vote in the 2016 presidential election, pointing out that Obama had once eaten at the hoagie chain.

The sandwich chain has become something of a local favorite among politicos and Washington insiders.

Patten faced the backlash after an event in January 2017 with the president at the Small Business Administration. He and Vice President Joe Biden also famously picked up lunch at the chain's Pennsylvania Avenue NW location during the 2013 government shutdown, drawing hoards of onlookers.

Taylor Gourmet has had a run of fast growth, almost doubling its store count in the past three years.
