Macheezmo Mouse Closing Its 4 Seattle-Area Restaurants

SEATTLE - Macheezmo Mouse will close its four Seattle stores and scurry back to Oregon, the chain announced yesterday.

The closures are the latest in a string of bad news from fast-food restaurants specializing in wraps - fancy burritos with gourmet fillings.

Macheezmo Mouse's Seattle-area restaurants contributed only 17 percent of revenue for the fiscal year ended July 1, while accounting for 30 percent of the loss for the same period, according to the company.

Based in Portland, the chain operates 14 restaurants in Oregon.
