Two restaurants file bankruptcy but do not notify employees

The holding company for two national restaurant chains file for bankruptcy relief on December 28.  The same day, the companies requested that the bankruptcy court allow them to only notify certain parties, mainly the major creditors, of the bankruptcy filing as notifying everyone would be costly and was not necessary.  The bankruptcy court approved this request so employees of Garcia’s Mexican restaurants and Garfield’s restaurants were not notified of the bankruptcy.

The US Trustee’s Office has stepped in and required all parties to be notified.  To read the full story see, “Garcia’s, Garfield’s Restaurants Tell Workers About Bankruptcy.”
