842034QCOSTARICA – Earlier this year, in March, the Burger King franchisee in Costa Rica, BK Centroamérica, closed four restaurants in the country: Plaza Real Cariari, Paseo Metrópoli, Heredia Centre and Santo Domingo, due to low profitability.

The closure put 39 people out of work.

At the time, BK Centroamérica said it would continue to operate the other 29 stores as usual, even hinted there may be new openings on the horizon.

However, yesterday, the Chamber of Commerce (Camara de Comercio), confirmed concerns about the possibility of BK shutting down operations entirely.

President of the Camara, Francisco Llobet, said the possibility of BK closing is worrying because many families depend on the company. “It would be a pretty strong blow and we are deeply concerned that many will be out of a job,” Llobet told the Diario Extra.

“It is an issue of competitiveness, we are unfortunately seeing this every day, companies moving away. For our part we are eager to talk with the government,” added Llobet.
