Luby's cafeteria to buy Fuddruckers and Koo Koo Roo for $61 million
Luby's, based in Houston, has agreed to buy the majority of the assets of Fuddruckers and Koo Koo Roo's parent company Magic Brands for about $61 million in cash, according to a statement released Friday.
The assets from Magic Brands, which filed for Chapter 11 protection in April, were sold to Luby's in an auction on Thursday as a part of the Austin-based company's bankruptcy process, the statement said.
Fuddruckers has 60 company-operated restaurants and 138 franchise locations, including eight in Southern California, Luby's said.
Koo Koo Roo has three locations: one in Santa Monica, one in West Hollywood and one in the Larchmont neighborhood of Los Angeles.
