MealMakers – Down and Out?

This has been mentioned to a certain extent before, but I just looked at the MealMakers website and it seems things are really going downhill. From what I can see there are only two stores left open within the country. The main page lists many states which should have stores, but only 5 are actually listed and of those 3 show as closed. It seems MealMakers is on the verge of total collapse.

The comment has been made that the corp. owners have taken the money and made a run for it. While this doesn’t support that conclusion it certainly doesn’t look good for MM as a company. While it’s not a happy thought, the demise of MealMakers may be imminent (if it hasn’t happened already). A couple of owners are still hanging on by their fingertips, but this may be the first domino to fall. And it would seem that once falls, the others are probably not going to be too far behind. With Dream Dinners facing more than one lawsuit, mergers falling apart or never getting off the ground, and other franchises teetering on the verge I think we are about to see something significant happen.

    There is a MealMakers in my town. I own an independent. They have just announced that they are closing up next Friday.

  • I think we can pretty much get out the white flag of surrender for the MM camp. I think we will list Meal Makers in the closed category and they will be listed as one of the first corporate closures. As such, I don’t think it will be too much longer before the others start to pile up. Meal Makers was comparable in size to a few other franchises out there, and if you take all the factors into account I doubt they are fairing much better. They may not have skipped town per se, but I doubt they have too much in their financial reserves and things are turning out a lot tougher than I think most of us originally thought.
