Scaffolding & NYT to Blame For Sophie’s Closing
If only it had been like this every day…
Got a response yesterday from Sophie’s Cuban HQ explaining why the 40th Street location closed this week:
“It never really generated enough business to cover expenses. We had hoped that the scaffolding [that is up in front of the building] would come down by summer but instead their project is indefinitely delayed. Scaffolding creates a gloomy environment and has an adverse impact on sales. The New York Times building didn’t provide as many customers as we expected either and so we have moved on. We are searching for a replacement location in the area (East of 7th) and will let you know when we get ready to open.”
I think we all could have eaten more fried pork and plantain sandwiches… we won’t let you down next time Sophie’s!
