Sbarro files for bankruptcy, Again! Print
Thursday, 13 March 2014 12:23

Forbes.com - It may be boom times for some restaurant chains, like stars Chipotle and Panera Bread, but don’t count Sbarro among those benefiting from the fast casual trend.

The fast food pizza chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection for the second time in less than three years after it tried and failed to boost sales by revamping its menu and shuttering its worst-performing restaurants. In February, Sbarro said it would close 155 out of the 400 restaurants it owns in North America, though it still has more than 800 locations abroad and about 600 owned by franchisees (the latter will not be affected by the bankruptcy).

In its 2011 bankruptcy, the company slashed 80% of its $400 million debt load. This time, it wants to cut another $140 million worth of debt. While Sbarro is inviting other parties to submit offers to buy the company, its main lenders voted to support a “pre-packaged” plan to exchange the debt for control of a reorganized Sbarro.

Tuesday, 11 March 2014 18:03

Newsday-  The Town of Oyster Bay has denied allegations in a federal lawsuit filed by the owner of a restaurant padlocked last year that the town fabricated building and health code violations.

He asserts that Oyster Bay's commissioner of planning, Frederick Ippolito, orchestrated a conspiracy to shut him down in September because he would not relocate from 2 Spring St. to a vacant Italian restaurant Ippolito owned or use an attorney the commissioner recommended.

Tuesday, 25 February 2014 15:10

UPI.com - Maurice Bessinger, the South Carolina restaurateur who lost a landmark civil rights suit seeking to deny blacks service, has died, his family said. He was 83.

Bessinger, who owned a chain of barbecue restaurants in South Carolina that led to a successful retail barbecue sauce business, was infamous for his pro-slavery position, arguing slavery was a good thing for southern blacks.

He also advocated for South Carolina to again secede from the union and proudly flew Confederate flags above his eateries.

Lawsuit filed in Jimmy John's delivery death Print
Tuesday, 25 February 2014 12:30

WVgazette.com - A lawsuit blames Jimmy John's "freaky fast delivery" for the death of a Morgantown man last year.

The restaurant's policy, which encourages drivers to complete their deliveries with all due speed, endangers the public, according to a lawsuit filed earlier this month in Monongalia Circuit Court.

On August 19, J. Robert McClain was walking his dog on South High Street in Morgantown when he was hit and killed by a Jimmy John's delivery driver.

Levi Sooy, who was working for Jimmy John's as an assistant manager, was speeding when he hit McClain, the lawsuit claims.

McClain's daughter, Linda Lutman, filed the lawsuit. Sooy is being sued along with Jimmy John's and CDL Properties LLC, which operates the sandwich shop in Morgantown.

Jimmy John's knew "or should have known that the foregoing policies encouraged Jimmy John's drivers to drive at excessive speeds and/or to engage in other unsafe practices in order to comply with the Jimmy John's 'Freaky Fast Delivery' policy," the complaint states. Continue
