ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. (FNS) -- Convenience-store operator White Hen Pantry has shuttered its prototype home-meal-replacement format here, apparently due to lack of interest among the consumers it was aiming to attract.
The operator's single Franny's Food Express, opened less than a year ago, was closed mid-March. Signage in the windows reads: "Our sincere thanks for your patronage. It's been a pleasure to serve you. Unfortunately, there just weren't enough great customers like you."
