Krystal is investigating a security breach that may have exposed payment information from customers at certain locations throughout the Southeast, including Tennessee.
Krystal has released a statement on their website that warns that some customer’s payment information may have been compromised
“The Krystal Company would like to advise guests that our company is actively investigating a security incident that involves one of the payment processing systems that services some of our restaurants. Our company has retained a leading forensics firm and is conducting an investigation to determine the extent to which information in Krystal’s systems may have been impacted. We are cooperating with law enforcement and have also notified the payment card networks of the investigation.” The statement reads in part.
The Krystal website indicates that locations in Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina and South Carolina may be affected in the security breach.
Locations in the listening area that could be affected in the breach include Athens, Harriman, Knoxville, Lenoir City, Maryville, and Oak Ridge.
105.7 News spoke with Krystal officials late this morning who say at this time the Crossville location is not on the list but could be placed on it after the investigation is completed.
