Los Angeles -Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles restaurants have untangled themselves out of bankruptcy. A Los Angeles judge confirmed a modified confirmation plan to repay creditors on Thursday.
The brand filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in March 2016. The filing came months after the company was ordered to pay $3.2 million to a former employee who won a wrongful termination and discrimination lawsuit against the soul food chain.
There are seven Roscoe’s locations in the Southland — in Hollywood, Long Beach, Pasadena, West Los Angeles, Inglewood, Los Angeles and Anaheim. Plans to open a San Diego branch were put on hold last year.
