Judge orders Warren Perkins to close

At a Friday morning hearing in Pittsburgh, a federal bankruptcy judge has ordered 10 Perkins restaurants to close – Warren included.

Chief Bankruptcy Judge Carlota Bohm approved a negotiated stipulation and consent order between 5171 Campbell Land Co., Inc. – which owned the license agreement to operate a total of 27 Perkins restaurants, including the Ludlow St. restaurant – and Perkins.

The agreement states that Campbell “shall immediately upon entry of this Consent Order, commence compliance with” a temporary restraining order instituted earlier this month that includes “closing the de-commissioned restaurants and removing all exterior signage and identification at the de-commissioned restaurants.”

The order states that if Campbell complies within 10 business days that a non-Perkins restaurant would be permitted to operate at the former Perkins location.
