  • Maid-Rite is under fire from a former area franchisee.
Eric and Faith Willoughby's Maid-Rite franchise opened in Maryville, Missouri, in May 2011. By May of this year, the restaurant had shuttered and the Willoughby family felt duped. According to a lawsuit filed in federal court in Kansas City, Missouri, yesterday, the former Maid-Rite franchisees are suing the company, alleging fraud and breach of contract over what they contend was an out-of-date Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).

The lawsuit maintains that the FDD was two years old and failed to show the material change in Maid-Rite's finances, as well as an apparent decline in the average ticket price for diners. CEO Bradley L. Burt and his wife, Tania M. Burt (the company's executive vice president and director), have also been named in the suit. And so the world of loose-meat sandwiches continues to be cutthroat.
