One of Pizza Hut's largest franchise companies, which owns several eastern Kentucky restaurants, is filing for bankruptcy.
The Courier Journal is reporting Midland Food Services filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection late Wednesday. Midland has five restaurants in eastern Kentucky and one in South Williamson, West Virginia.
Minimum wage increases, the rising cost of ingredients and unfavorable lease terms were sited as reasons why the company filed papers for the second time.
Midland filed Chapter 11 back in October 2000.
