Just Announced that Taylor Gourmet is closing.

https://www.washingtonian.com/2018/09/21/hoagie-chain-taylor-gourmet-will-close-all-of-its-stores/

I loathe Trump as much as the next guy......but fuck "Le Resistance" for taking away my Taylors

KEEP YOUR POLITICS OFF MY SAMMICHES

Hard to believe Drumpf caused all of this, my guess a mixture of him + rapid expansion... Possibly Julian's friend Mike Isabella was an investor as well?

The main investor was a PE firm (KarpReilly), founded by Allan Karp, who gave Hillary and the Democratic Party $75k in 2016.

I doubt he sank the Taylor ship simply over political differences, although it may have tipped the scales in the decision to stop funding them.

I've got a loooong list of things that I'm blaming Trump for, but Taylor gourmet...nope
I agree with yada...expanded too quick, it's a jungle out there in the restaurant/fast casual biz

It's really a shame, as I know there are a lot of loyal fans of their subs
I just don't eat lunch out that much anymore, so I'd maybe go there once a year
