Iconic Hollywood Arby's to close doors after 55 years ... the "nail in the coffin" was what you'd expect
· Jun 20, 2024 · NottheBee.com

Another one bites the dust, California, and this one we'll never forget.

Yes, that classic Arby's on Sunset Boulevard just west of the 101 closed on Saturday, saying the new $20 fast-food minimum wage law was the "nail in the coffin" for them.

A family-owned Arby's Roast Beef that has been a fixture on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood for 55 years shut its doors, blaming California's recently enacted $20-an-hour minimum wage law as the final ‘nail in the coffin.'

‘With inflation, food costs have gone way up and the $20-an-hour minimum wage has been the nail in the coffin,' Gary Husch, general manager of the Arby's location, told Los Angeles Times.

Husch is the son-in-law of 91-year-old Marilyn Leviton, who opened the Arby's franchise at 5920 Sunset Boulevard in January 1969, six months before the moon landing.

But on Friday, Arby's workers arriving for their shift were told they were being let go.

55 years and it's all over.

Thanks a lot, Gavin Newsom!

Oh, and must I remind you of all of these stories we've brought you concerning the results of this new minimum wage law in California?

Just another day in California ...
