The restaurant industry under pressure for facing Chapter 11

Corporate bankruptcies tracked off from the stages of crest of 2009 and 2010, this year but have begun to mount again recently among fears of a double-dip recession. American Airlines parent AMR as well as Eastman Kodak, famed imaging and photography company were among those facing a fluctuating share price. The restaurant industry looks mostly under pressure this week, with several major chains joining Perkins & Marie Callender's, Sbarro, Charlie Brown's Steakhouse, and Fuddruckers in Chapter 11. The Friendly Ice Cream Corporation filed for bankruptcy in Delaware on October 5. In 2007, Sun Capital Partners bought Friendly's for $337.2 million.
