Tony Roma’s Still Up For Sale, while Krystal Co. Auction in Second Stage

Now a little bit of restaurant deal info.

It’s been a while since I’ve heard anything on the Tony Roma’s auction. In fact, I thought the process was dead.

This isn’t true, I’m hearing. In fact, the auction of the casual dining chain known for its ribs is still going on, sources say. I’m not sure what is taking so long, but Tony Roma’s is in talks with some restaurant groups (I assume this means strategics), sources say.

Highland Capital Management has put Tony Roma’s up for sale, sources say.

Five bidders, a mix of strategics and private equity, are vying for the company, one person said. Houlihan Lokey is advising. The auction began one month ago, the source said.

One banker said the sale of Tony Roma’s is a small deal. The company has less than $20 million EBITDA, the banker said. A strategic is expected to acquire Tony Roma’s, the first source said.
