A June 13th article written in the Wyoming Business Report indicated that “Perkins and Marie Callender's Inc., owner of the Perkins and Marie Callender's restaurant chains, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in a Delaware court” Monday.
Sugarland Enterprises of Sheridan, which owns all Wyoming Perkins Restaurant and Bakery locations, is not among those filing for Chapter 11, says spokesman Troy Baker.
Baker explains that the reason for the bankruptcy on the corporate level is because of Marie Callender's.
One might think that filing for Chapter 11 means that will hang over a business for several years, but in this case, it's a restructuring issue with stores around the country -- again, not including Wyoming's.
Sugarland Enterprises owns and operates, as a franchisee, Perkins Restaurant and Bakeries in Sheridan, Gillette Casper, Laramie and Cheyenne.
