Turkey Leg Hut declares bankruptcy

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Filed by Turkey Leg Hut Amid Financial Troubles and Legal Issues

In 2016, the Turkey Leg Hut opened in Houston and quickly became a popular spot in the community. However, controversy and legal battles have plagued the restaurant since its inception. On Tuesday, March 26, the restaurant filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy due to financial troubles caused by a fire at the business office and ongoing legal issues with former business partner Steve Rogers. The filing took place in the 127th Judicial District Court in Harris County after a judge ordered owner Nakia Holmes and former co-owner Lyndell Price to pay over $900,000 to Rogers.

The strange circumstances surrounding the fire and legal issues have taken a toll on the restaurant’s finances. In a court hearing on Tuesday, a receiver was appointed to handle the restaurant’s assets and funds to help pay off debts. The Turkey Leg Hut owes $2 million in state tax revenue and has been embroiled in a lawsuit with Rogers, which has added to its financial woes.

Despite these challenges, the Turkey Leg Hut remains a popular spot in Houston’s community. However, it is unclear what changes will be made as it continues discussions with financial stakeholders to reposition itself out of bankruptcy. The restaurant’s future remains uncertain as it navigates through these turbulent times.
