Turkey Leg Hut Files for Bankruptcy Amid Legal Battles and Financial Woes

Turkey Leg Hut declares bankruptcy

The Turkey Leg Hut, a popular spot in the Houston community, has filed for bankruptcy. Owner Nakia Holmes announced the news on Tuesday, March 26, following a judge’s ruling ordering her and former co-owner Lyndell Price to pay over $900,000 to a former business partner.

The legal issues and a strange fire at the restaurant’s business office have led to financial troubles for the Turkey Leg Hut. In a court hearing on Tuesday, a receiver was appointed to handle the restaurant’s assets and funds to help pay off debts.

The Turkey Leg Hut is facing a debt of $2 million in state tax revenue and a lawsuit from former business partner Steve Rogers. To reposition the business, they have decided to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. This move will put an end to collection efforts while discussions continue with financial stakeholders.

Since its opening in 2016, the Turkey Leg Hut has been at the center of controversy and legal battles, becoming a focal point for discussions on race and gentrification in Houston. Despite these challenges, it remains a popular spot in the community.
