HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A popular Hattiesburg eatery shut down unexpectedly Monday morning, leaving many employees without a job. 

According to Trey Randle, a former Cheddar's employee, no one who worked at the location was given any notice or warning to the sudden closure. 

"I showed up to work and there were cars I had never seen before in the parking lot, they were clearing out furniture and signs were all over the building saying the restaurant was closed," Randle said. 

Randle said he tried to enter the building to get answers, but all the doors were locked. 

Randle said he received an email from his Kitchen Manager Neil Gore, who he says also didn't know about the closure. 

"We went from check stubs to pay cards about a month ago, but they(Gore) said in an email that we would still get paid this week," Randle said. 

Seven On Your Side reached out to the corporate offices of Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen and received the following statement:

“After four years in this location, we have made the difficult decision to close our Turtlecreek Crossing location due to its struggle to remain profitable. We appreciate the Hattiesburg community’s support through the years and as a token of gratitude, we are offering severance packages to team members based on tenure.” David Reckner, Regional Vice President at Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen

Randle said due to the doors being locked, he was unable to talk to anyone inside for guidance on finding a new job.

    As originally proposed, the new "association health plans" would have to cover people with pre-existing health conditions. However, they could offer narrower benefits than required under the Obama-era health law.
