4 restaurants that closed in Mississauga and Brampton in June 2024

When our favourite spots to satisfy hunger close for good, finding a replacement can be a challenge. Here are four restaurants in Mississauga and Brampton that shuttered their doors in June.

John Anderson Burgers

Anderson Mississauga closes

After 45 years of serving burgers and fries, John Anderson Burgers, named after original owner and the former Toronto Maple Leafs’ winger, closed its doors for good at its 1069 Dundas Street West location in Mississauga.

The restaurant served comfort foods, including burgers, fries, hotdogs, chili, souvlaki, gyros, fish and chips, and more.

“We sold a lot of burgers over the years,” added the message from current management. “Yet we also made a lot of friends. Thank you!”

The reason for the closure is unknown.

Frank’s Hamburgers

RED CARD CLOSURE: Popular hamburger joint shut down due to health risks in Brampton

Frank’s Hamburgers, located at 227 Vodden St E. in Brampton, has been shut down due to a failed health inspection on June 27. Issues cited include unclean non-food surfaces and health hazards. This is the restaurant’s second inspection, with the first failure recorded. It will remain closed until a follow-up inspection is passed to reopen it.

Molisana Bakery

Molisana Bakery, located at 1474 Pickwick Dr. in Mississauga,  announced its closure via social media.

The bakery, known for its baked goods, pizza, and Italian-style sandwiches, expressed heartfelt gratitude to the community for 25 years of support.

Despite facing pandemic challenges, the bakery thrived thanks to loyal customers.

While the owners did not specify reasons for closing, they described the decision as bittersweet, as they were leaving the bakery during its busiest time.

They extended warm wishes to their patrons for continued happiness and success in the future.

The WORKS Craft Burger & Beer

The WORKS Craft Burger & Beer, known for its gourmet burgers such as the Double Stuff’d Reese PBC, recently shuttered its Brampton location after more than a decade in operation.

The downtown spot on Queen Street is now permanently closed, a decision attributed to the landlord’s decision not to renew the lease, as confirmed by franchise owner Sham Brar.

The closure follows challenges facing Ontario’s restaurant industry, including substantial rent increases and financial strains from pandemic-related loans.

Despite a modest recovery in in-person dining, many establishments are grappling with ongoing economic pressures.

While The WORKS maintains operations in Mississauga, it previously closed its Kitchener location in 2018.
