Atlanta-based restaurant chain expresses interest in buying Perkins franchises

An Atlanta based restaurant chain has announced it plans to buy all of the Perkins franchises around the country — but it’s unclear if that purchase would include the restaurants around Youngstown currently owned by a company that filed bankruptcy. Officials with Huddle House say the deal is scheduled to close on October 21st. Huddle House has 339 restaurants in 23 states. The closest being in Seville, Ohio — west of Akron. Perkins and Marie Callender’s filed for bankruptcy protection in August. The Huddle House deal is only for the Perkins franchise. The Youngstown Area’s Perkins restaurants are owned by 51-71 Campbell’s Land Company — which also filed for bankruptcy — and is currently in a dispute with the Perkins chain over unpaid franchise fees.
