Casual commentary about political, cultural and economic issues with a particular interest on the city of Winnipeg by John Dobbin
On Friday, January 22, 2010, Taco del Mar filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in Seattle. Among its major creditors were Suzanne Todd, a franchisee in Maryland, with a disputed claim for $500,000; Paul & Shahnaz Hendifar, with a $125,416 judgment entered in Texas; Canada Revenue Agency, with a $105,324 tax claim, and the city of Seattle, with a $95,289 claim for taxes.Taco del Mar was auctioned in a bankruptcy sale on September 30, 2010, and the winning bid of $3.25 million came from Connecticut company Franchise Brands LLC, according to a story in the Seattle Times.Franchise Brands was created in 2005 by Fred De Luca and Peter Buck the founders of Subway restaurants. Both Subway and Franchise Brands LLC are based in Milford, Conn.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taco_del_Mar
Hello, I'm not sure you're correct in saying that it will be Winnipeg's first Taco Del Mar location. There are two other locations that appear to be 'ahead of the game' on opening: On on William at Sherbrooke, and one at Kenaston and McGillvary. Both are joint with new Subway locations. Its definitely interesting that they've removed IHOP and Montanas, but I wouldn't be surprised if one or both of them showed up anyway. The south and southwest quadrants could certainly use some breakfast-oriented restaurants... Coras on Waverley is a zoo; another Pancake House, or an IHOP would do very well near IKEA. I guess time will tell.
Looks like 2 of the stores are Dollarama and bouclair
