...I can't say I'll miss the restaurants. Bennigan's was the very definition of a generic chain restaurant. Nothing interesting or compelling about their menu at all. We only ate there when circumstance left us with little or no other choice. It was just a step above Denny's in my book.
Bankruptcy, chapter 7, which is sell everything and pay pennies on the dollar to creditors, shareholders in the holding company probably walk away with nothing. Google news.
Turns out the ONLY remaining Bennigan's in the whole state of Maryland is right up the road from us, so we stopped by there tonight to eat.
All company owned Bennigans have closed their doors, suddenly, some people only discovered today they were out of a job. Some of the fewer franchised Bennigan's such as near me are still in business, for now. Obviously the business plan for those franchisees will be changing in some manner in the near future.
