Crumbs Bake Shop shuts down all 65 stores

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Crumbs Bake Shops are no more. The cupcake maker told workers it was shutting down all stores by the end of business on Monday.

Crumbs was founded on the Upper West Side in 2003, selling gourmet cupcakes and is credited with pioneering the cupcake craze in New York City. The family-owned shop was bought by a shell company in 2011 and went public that June.

Since going public, Crumbs has faced serious financial problems. In 2012, Crumbs lost $10.3 million, according to securities filings. In 2013, Crumbs lost an additional $18.2 million on top of their 2012 losses.

The stock plummeted below 30 cents in June, prompting Nasdaq to suspend Crumb’s stock from the exchange because it didn’t meet the minimum stockholders equity requirement.

165 employees and 655 part-time workers were let go as a result of the shutdown.

    The recent death of a man from Staten Island while he was being arrested by NYPD officers is calling into question a police crackdown on petty offenses to discourage more serious crime. Critics say policing based on the so-called "broken windows" theory can needlessly put people at risk and fuel tensions in the city's minority communities.
