A few local locations of one restaurant franchise could see new ownership. 28 Perkins Restaurants sold for $7.8 million this week.
The Meadville and Edinboro Perkins are included in that deal. The previous owners filed for bankruptcy back in February, and on Tuesday, the restaurants were auctioned off as a group at a hearing at the US Bankruptcy Court in Erie. The deal still needs final approval by a federal bankruptcy judge.
The Edinboro Perkins closed after a fire in 2015, but the new ownership plans to reopen.
