Bennigan’s CEO has a post-bankruptcy plan for success

businessman analyzing data

When small business owners here in Atlanta begin drowning in debt, a number of them feel like they have no options other than putting up a “Going out of Business” sign and calling it a day. However, in many cases business do have a number of opportunities that can help resolve debt problems and keep doors open. In some cases, bankruptcy allows business owners to do this.

Many people may think that a business bankruptcy is too complicated or difficult, but in fact in many cases the simpler Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection is a viable option. A pretty large restaurant business that started right here in Atlanta has recently emerged from Chapter 7 bankruptcy and it has a plan to enjoy a major resurgence.

Bennigan’s filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection back in 2008. During that time the company closed 150 of its locations, but franchise stores remained in business.

Today, the company has about 100 restaurants worldwide, and agreements are in place for up to 40 more.

The company’s new CEO, who took over in 2011, recently talked with Fox Business and provided several tips for companies that need to make a comeback post-bankruptcy or after difficult times. They include:

  1. Determine a clear mission and strategy.
  2. Put together a great team of employees.
  3. Plan to go above and beyond what is necessary to provide a good customer experience, provided the business involves customer service.

Small business owners in Atlanta may benefit from taking advantage of the reprieve and fresh start that bankruptcy offers. Of course, this is not the best solution for all business owners. Those business owners who are struggling with debt might benefit from talking to a bankruptcy attorney about various debt relief options.

    They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

    Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

    I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

    Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

    I contacted getting old and getting old regarding some old tax debt and credit card debt that I needed to address and had been putting off. miss Irving in the office was very very nice and put me at ease. I met with Jaime Gingold. She was very nice and explained the procedure to me and what would be left owing to the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Georgia after my case was done. My case has now been completed and I am on my way to a new start. Thank you Gingold and Gingold for all of your help.
