HARKER HEIGHTS, TX (KXXV) -

One year after the Twin Peaks shooting in Waco, employees let go after the franchisee's Harker Heights location closed are speaking out.

In September 40 employees at the Twin Peaks in Harker Heights were out of a job after the restaurant closed down.

This particular franchise was owned by the same company (Peaktastic LLC) that managed the restaurant in Waco. A spokesman with Twin Peaks Corporate, the franchiser, said this shutdown was put into motion shortly after the May 17th shootout.

However, when asked if this was linked to the biker gang shooting, the spokesman for Peaktastic LLC, the franchise, said "the franchiser and the franchisee have simply decided to go their separate ways."

At the time, that spokesman also said Peaktastic LLC will be paying employees two weeks worth of wages and that they’re working with Twin Peaks Corporate to offer those who lost their jobs a chance to work at another location.

Now, News Channel 25's Rochelle Allyene is catching up with some of those employees who were let go.

Tune in to News Channel 25 at 6 p.m. to see what they had to say.
