HOUSTON – US Foods is reportedly suing Turkey Leg Hut for more than $1 million.
- The Houston restaurant has quickly grown in popularity over the years due to several viral posts on TikTok. It is on Almeda Road and there are constant queues around the building.
- US Foods‘ lawsuit against Turkey Leg Hut was filed on December 2, 2022. It mentions an alleged total unpaid balance of $1,288,583.12 in unpaid bills for groceries and non-PACA food-related products and services incurred under the agreement between US Foods and Turkey Leg Hut,
- excluding interest, costs and fees .
- Turkey Leg Hut also agreed to pay interest at a rate of 1.5% per month on all overdue payments until collected, the lawsuit states.
- The document also states that the restaurant has agreed to pay all costs, expenses and fees, including attorneys’ fees, that US Foods may incur to enforce or protect its rights under the US Foods-Turkey Leg Hut agreement.
- These costs are not included in the total unpaid balance of nearly $1.3 million.
- “I’m really surprised they’re in this situation considering it’s quite a busy restaurant with a lot of customers,” said Fred Gordon of Gordon Restaurant Consulting.
- “Apparently an agreement has been signed with the restaurant and the actual distributor.
- I don’t know the net terms attached to the agreement but it will be difficult for you to outsource to another supplier in town.
