At least two Black-eyed Pea restaurants in North Texas have temporarily closed less than a year after the restaurants' ownership group filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
A Black-eyed Pea location on Airport Freeway in Hurst had a sign that read the restaurant was "temporarily closed" Wednesday morning.
The sign stated they will "let you know when we are able to re-open.”
The latest news from around North Texas.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported that the Black-eyed Pea on Camp Bowie Boulevard in Fort Worth had the same sign on the door Monday.
The Star-Telegram reported that calls to two Arlington locations and one Dallas location went unanswered Monday evening.
The restaurant's Facebook page was also unavailable, as of Wednesday morning.
Arlington-based Restaurants Acquisition I, LLC., which owns Black-eyed Pea restaurants in Texas, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization in December. The group closed 15 stores at the time due to shrinking profits.
It is not yet known if the recent temporary closures are related to the bankruptcy filing.
