The Gino's Burgers & Chicken outlet in Bensalem is now buttoned up after 90 days.

"Conflicting interests" is the official explanation; unlike the flagship location in King of Prussia, the Bensalem location was owned by a franchise group.

It also had a drive-thru - something that Gino's never had years ago and in its new incarnation.

Besides KoP, there are five other locations in Maryland, including one at Camden Yards.

Bensalem has had a checkered past with burger chains. Sonic Drive-In opened, closed, and later reopened its Street Road joint last year.
