What Is Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Filed By Brown Sugar Kitchen?

Brown Sugar Kitchen has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy which means it is not closing down permanently. Chapter 11 will allow the restaurant to reorganize the restaurant and take control of its finances. This would mean finding ways to cut down expenses, sell assets and renegotiate terms with creditors. The biggest advantage is that all of this will take place legally with the help of a government-appointed trustee. Moreover, Holland said, “I only thought of negative connotations of it. Now I have great investor support, and seasoned advisers telling me, this is a common, very positive tool.”

Tanya Holland Blames Racism For Lagging Behind

Tanya is a national figure in the world of food. However, she feels the systemic racism in the country is the reason why she is lagging behind other chefs. The lack of investors and advisers has affected her career. Moreover, she said, “Because of systemic racism, I’m so many steps behind. If I had the access to advisers, financing, and other opportunities that I had requested and sought out and worked for a decade ago, I’d be in such a better position today, but that’s not my story.”
