Leo's Coney Island faces lawsuit from Chicago franchisee
Michigan-based Leo's Coney Island, which has several restaurants in Washtenaw County, faces a lawsuit from a Chicago franchisee who is accusing the company of failing to provide enough corporate support, according to the Detroit News.
Leo's, which has restaurants in Saline, Ypsilanti and Pittsfield Township, was sued in Circuit Court of Cook County, Ill.
The suit alleges that "Leo's lack of guidance on a major issue such as kitchen procurement and design, caused undue financial hardships and led to many mistakes in the build out of the kitchen," the News reported.
Leo's Coney Island has 16 corporately owned restaurants and 25 restaurants owned by franchisees.
