Leadership

Punch Bowl Social gets two new CEOs

Robert Cornog, one of the founders of the food-and-games concept, and Richard Flaherty, previously its COO, will share leadership duties as the company emerges from the pandemic.

Financing

Punch Bowl’s sale to its lender is finalized

Crowd Out Capital’s $32 million bid for the company has been approved as a dispute with another lender is ended, paving away for it to emerge from bankruptcy this month.

The lender, which has controlled the eatertainment chain since last year, was named the stalking horse bidder for the chain, but other potential buyers are lurking.

The company and its lender have made peace and the company is attracting interest from potential buyers.

The eatertainment chain’s bankruptcy filing revealed a dispute with its lender that dated back to last year.

The company filed for Chapter 11 on Monday. On Tuesday it blamed the filing on two former executives.

The new CEO of the struggling eatertainment chain says the company is facing "a very tough 12 months," but is confident in its future.

The former head of Garden Fresh Restaurants replaces chain founder Robert Thompson, who resigned last week.

The entrepreneur said he intends to start a business incubator.

Founder Robert Thompson joins this week’s edition of the RB podcast A Deeper Dive, and insists consumers will come back to his restaurants.
