Midlands Ryan’s locations closed due to bankruptcy

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Six Ryan's locations in South Carolina have closed their doors.

Buffets, LLC, the parent company which owns Ryan's, will file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in order to restructure debts and liabilities.

"Buffets, LLC, was acquired by merger in August of 2015. The Chapter 11 filing is prompted by the discovery of liabilities, or alleged liabilities, that we believe were not disclosed in our negotiations," Peter Donbavand, Buffets Vice President of Business Development said. "We intend to investigate the propriety of the disclosures, and intend to consult with our counsel regarding any remedies we may have."

Restaurants in Columbia and Orangeburg are among the South Carolina locations that have closed.

Others closed in Spartanburg, Greer, Conway and Surfside Beach.
