Upper Crust Pizzeria Closes

Signs announce business closure on the front door.

It appears Upper Crust Pizza in Salem has closed, according to signs posted on the front door of the Washington Street business.

A reason for the closure was not immediately available. The business was in operation as recently as last week.

On Feb. 17, Twitter user Andy Seidel tweeted "RIP upper crust Salem." Since then, other Salem-based tweeters have acknowleged the closure.

On Sunday morning, the Salem location was still listed on the company website.

In June of 2011, the company was ordered to pay $80K in back wages as well as liquidated damages for 11 employees after the U.S. Department of Labor's (DOL) Wage and Hour Division found multiple violations in the handling of overtime pay and record keeping.

Salem Patch will bring you more on the closure as it becomes available.

if I wanted a burnt tortilla with rubbish on it, I'd go to taco bell. I don't mind thin crust, but I always had issues with how burnt every Upper Crust pizza was. even the one in Boston was bad. My company stopped using them because they were burning 20 out of 25 pizzas to cinder.

I must be missing your point. If you liked upper crust why dont you just say so? It wasn't one person or one city that put them out of business,it was of their own doing.Try Bertuccis PP Man it's pretty good.

My comment was far from vulgar so why is it gone?

it was probably a response to the one that was deleted, so the whole thread tends to go when that happens
