Madison Perkins restaurants safe ‘for now’

In a company release, Perkins & Marie Callender’s LLC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, putting its restaurants on notice. Two Perkins restaurants, one in Janesville and another in La Crosse, immediately closed as a result, but Madison’s two locations remain open “for now,” according to media reports.

As part of the restructuring process, the company closed 10 Perkins and 19 Marie Callender’s restaurants around the country on Aug. 4. Remaining restaurants remain open and operating as usual.
