Upper Crust workers’ lawyer raising funds to buy four more stores

The lawyer representing former Upper Crust employees is spearheading a fundraising effort to turn four more Upper Crust restaurants into partially worker-owned stores.

Upper Crust filed for bankruptcy protection in October and 10 stores were auctioned in December. The high bidder for the four locations – in the South End, Lexington, Wellesley, and Watertown – is UC Acquisition, an investment firm with ties to Upper Crust founder Jordan Tobins, who was placed on leave after co-owners accused him of using the company’s money for his own expenses.
