Best Chicago Meat Co. Buys Moo & Oink Brand – Jan, 2012

Best Chicago Meat Co., LLC, purchased Moo & Oink’s intellectual property at public auction for $530,000 on Dec. 14. The four Moo & Oink stores – three in Chicago and one in Hazel Crest – filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in late September, 2011. Because there were no bidders on the real estate, the stores will remain closed. Purchased by Best Chicago Meat were Moo & Oink’s name, logo, characters, website, commercial jingle and perhaps most important – its recipes.
