The restaurant that gained fame for its $15 minimum wage has abandoned it’s much-touted starting pay scale and now its brick-and-mortar restaurants, too. The Detroit News first-reports that Moo Cluck Moo has shuttered its original location in Dearborn Heights a little over a month after closing its Canton restaurant.

The owners had previously announced plans to focus on developing a fleet of food trucks and its catering business, and apparently meant that literally. The company currently has one food truck in the field and two slated to launch in the spring as well as one remaining restaurant at Ford Field. The Dearborn Heights spot confirmed the shutter on Facebook.
