So, let’s talk about Bill the Butcher, shall we? Seems they’ve been getting some interesting press lately, and here are the highlights:
The Seattle Times reports that “This past week, according to a regulatory filing, the company had to undo a major financing transaction and take back 6 million shares it had issued last month.”
Eater Seattle says the company’s latest SEC filing shows that Bill the Butcher now has about $40,000 in cash.
Then, there’s The Stranger, whose “Mystery Meat” article last year questioned the company’s claim of Bill the Butcher’s meat as “certified organic and natural.” Now, they’re reporting that CEO William Von Schneidau, as in the “Bill” in Bill the Butcher, is out of the picture and taking legal action against the company.
So where does this leave the empty, freshly-painted space in Wallingford? Your guess is as good as mine since no one can be reached for comment. We feel your pain, Edmonds! (Personally, we’re hoping for Zaw to come in and save the day.)
