Aug 5 (Reuters) - Perkins & Marie Callender's Holding LLC, which operates U.S. family dining restaurants, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Monday with the U.S. bankruptcy court in Delaware.
The Memphis-based company sought protection from creditors after reports that it was considering a possible sale through the bankruptcy process.
Perkins & Marie Callender's also filed for bankruptcy 11 in 2011, and emerged that year under the control of Wayzata Investment Partners. Wayzata remains its majority owner, according to Monday's bankruptcy petition.
