On Monday, pizzaria chain Sbarro — an iconic name within the food court community at many of the nation’s malls — filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection … again.
The restaurant also filed bankruptcy in 2011, and though Sbarro was allowed to emerge from that filing, the underlying causes of its fiscal problems never really went away. Thus, it’s back in dire straits.
But Sbarro is hardly the only restaurant struggling to make ends meet right now. Indeed, there are several more that may be following in the pizza chain’s bankruptcy footsteps. In no particular order, here are four more restaurants that may be fiscally insolvent in the foreseeable future.
