The Turkey Leg Hut Files for Bankruptcy: Legal Issues and Financial Troubles Bring Restaurant’s Future into Question

Turkey Leg Hut declares bankruptcy

The Turkey Leg Hut, a popular restaurant in Houston that opened in 2016, has filed for bankruptcy after facing financial troubles due to legal issues and a fire at its business office. The filing took place in the 127th Judicial District Court in Harris County on Tuesday, March 26.

Owner Nakia Holmes stated that the decision to file for bankruptcy was made after a judge ruled that she and former co-owner Lyndell Price owed over $900,000 to a former business partner. In addition, the restaurant has been struggling with state tax revenue of $2 million and a lawsuit from Steve Rogers, which has led to financial difficulties.

To address these issues, the Turkey Leg Hut has appointed a receiver to handle its assets and funds to help pay off debts. The restaurant plans to reposition itself through discussions with financial stakeholders while putting an end to collection efforts. Despite facing controversy and legal battles over race and gentrification issues in Houston, the Turkey Leg Hut remains a popular spot in the community.
