Houston-based Ignite Restaurant Group submitted its Chapter 11 plan and bidding procedures for the company’s two brands— Joe’s Crab Shack and Brick House Tavern + Tap — in bankruptcy court this week.

So far, two companies have officially offered to buy Ignite’s brands. The bidding process will give other companies until 4 p.m. Central Time on Aug. 3 to submit a competing bid.

Houston-based Ignite Restaurant Group submitted its Chapter 11 plan and bidding… more


When Ignite first filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in June, the company said KRG Acquisitions Co. LLC, an affiliate of San Diego-based private equity company Kelly Cos., had agreed to buy both brands for $50 million.

Houston-based Landry’s Inc. then filed a bid with the bankruptcy court to buy the brands for $55 million. At the time, Landry’s also described how previous talks with Ignite had fallen apart and objected to Ignite’s earlier bid procedures motion. Landry's, led by Houston billionaire Tilman Fertitta, owned Joe’s Crab Shack in the 1990s and grew the brand to more than 100 locations nationwide before selling it in 2006.

Now, any other company wishing to bid on the brands must offer a purchase price of at least $55.1 million, among other requirements, according to the procedures filed July 6.

If a bid is received that complies with the requirements, it will be included in an auction with the previous bids. The auction is expected to be held on Aug. 7 at 10 a.m. local time at the offices of King & Spalding LLP in Houston. Then, a sale hearing is scheduled for 3 p.m. Aug. 17 in bankruptcy court in Houston. A deal won’t be considered accepted until it’s approved by the bankruptcy court.

Ignite Restaurant Group, Inc., a diversified restaurant company, operates a portfolio of restaurants in the United States. The company operates three restaurants under the Joe's Crab Shack, Brick House Tavern + Tap, and Romano's Macaroni Grill brands. Its restaurant offers a range of food and beverages. As of December 30, 2013, the company owned and operated 136 Joe's Crab Shacks, 20 Brick House Tavern + Taps, and 179 Romano's Macaroni Grills in 36 states. It also franchises 24 Macaroni Grills in 4 states and 10 international markets. The company was formerly known as Joe's Crab Shack Holdings, Inc. and changed its name to Ignite Restaurant Group, Inc. in July 2009. Ignite Restaurant Group, Inc. was founded in 1991 and is headquartered in Houston, Texas.
