In March, the Roadhouse Kitchen in Fort Worth, Texas, went into receivership and its owner filed for bankruptcy.
The restaurant’s owner, Dave Johnson, has since filed for Chapter 11 protection.
Johnson said that the restaurant’s ingredients were sold on the internet, without the knowledge or consent of the owners.
Johnson, who is now a consultant and food industry veteran, has taken on a legal battle to protect his company and customers.
“We can’t sell our ingredients without their consent,” he told VICE News.
“It’s been a lot of work, and I think we’re going to win, but it’s going to take a lot more work than I expected.”
In April, the restaurant was featured in a documentary, The Roadhouse, that follows Johnson’s journey from his early days as a chef at the restaurant to becoming a successful food entrepreneur.
The documentary, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, focuses on Johnson’s work with a number of startups, including his partnership with the New York City-based startup, Vibe.
In addition to The Roadside Kitchen, Johnson has built the Texas Roadhouse Restaurant Group, which operates restaurants in Dallas, Austin, and Houston.
The group also operates restaurants like The Texas RoadHouse Kitchen, and The Texas BBQ Grill, which serves barbecue and Texas-style food in Texas.
The Roadhouses have since expanded into more locations in Houston, Austin and Dallas.
According to Johnson, the Texas BBQ has been an instant hit.
“They have a huge, massive, loyal fan base.
The people that go there are like family, like their parents and grandparents,” he said.
“People say they’ve been going there for five years.
We just got our first customer that came to us on Facebook.
I think our customer-base has gone from 40 people to 200.”
Johnson told VICE that he believes his restaurants have created a lot for people.
“I don’t think it’s a product, it’s more of a community.
We’re the community, we’re the family, and we’re doing what we believe in,” he explained.
“You’re in this business for the love of it, and that’s what I do.
I believe in what I’m doing.
I don’t believe in selling anything.
I’m not selling my own product.
I just want people to be happy, and have a good experience, and want to come back.
