Macaroni Grill operator wants out of lease
Dublin one of three restaurants in bankruptcy
Waterloo Restaurant Ventures that still owns the empty, bankrupt Macaroni Grill in Dublin has asked a bankruptcy judge to allow it to cancel its lease with the owners of Hacienda Crossings where the restaurant was located.
Dublin is one of three of the investment firm's now-closed Macaroni Grill locations, with the others in San Jose and Boise, according to a report in the Portland Business Journal by Wendy Culverwell.
Vancouver, Wash.-based Waterloo held the rights to develop the Romano's Macaroni Grill restaurant concept in Oregon, Washington, Northern California and parts of Idaho. A hearing is set for 9 a.m. June 18, in Dallas, the Portland Journal reported.
