Friendly’s is closing restaurants in Danbury, Southington and Waterbury as part of mass closures throughout the Northeast, with the company not stating how many jobs it is cutting.

The ice cream parlor is based in Wilbraham, Mass. and has 17 locations in Connecticut. Friendly’s told franchisees on Monday it is closing locations where it leases coming up for renewal.

Friendly’s underwent a Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding in 2011.
