Bennigan’s closing

Posted by beer_chris on 29-July-2008

Looks like the parent company of Bennigans and Steak & Ale is filing for Chapter 7, which means immediate closure and asset liquidation. Initial news reports indicate that all restaurants are closing unless they are franchised – is this indicative of a larger trend against corporate restaurants or just the closure of an outdated concept?

I haven’t been to a Bennigans in probably 2 years, and I can’t remember the last time I even thought about going to Steak & Ale. Will they be missed? I think Chilis, TGI Fridays, and Fertita will effectively carry the torch.
