Not Too Chicken to File Bankruptcy: Restaurant Chain “Chicken Out” in Chapter 11

Restaurant chain Chicken Out Rotisserie has filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the District of Maryland Bankruptcy Court .

According to the Baltimore Business Journal, the eatery’s debts are far in excess of its assets – the company owes at least 50 creditors between $10 million and $50 million, while its assets are worth merely $ 1 million to $10 million. The debt includes over a half a million dollars in unpaid sales tax and a $7.8 million debt owed to the company’s President and CEO, Richard Hindin.

The restaurant chain has 10 locations in the Washington Metro Area, claiming to serve a healthier comfort food using organic and fresh ingredients. A Chapter 11 means that the company will try to reorganize and restructure, hoping to stay in business and emerge from the bankruptcy leaner and stronger.
