Greene County-based national franchises closing

Jan 02, 2023 12:09 pm

Liz Montgomery reports for Porcupine Soup that two longtime national businesses are closing local franchises this week. The Just-A-Buck store in Greenville and the Pizza Hut in Catskill are shuttering. “After 24 years of business in Greenville, Just-A-Buck has decided to close this location,” the company reported, without explaining why. The store first opened in 1998 and recently announced that prices were going up to $1.25. The Pizza Hut, on Maple Avenue in Catskill, opened in 1991. Manager Greg Smith posted social media how he felt about the decision. “Pizza Hut is the reason I moved to Catskill in 1994 and I believe my life to be better for it. Some of the people I met because of Pizza Hut I am still very close with today. Today I was allowed to make the very last pizza there and I’m very grateful.” Pizza Hut’s corporate office did not explain why the restaurant was closing and Larry Fugate, who owns the franchise, could not be reached for comment.
