by CHLOE. first opened in New York five years ago and quickly became the hottest spot on the block. From guac burgers and taco salads to Hostess-style cupcakes, the vegan fast-casual restaurant gained traction and expanded to locations in Los Angeles, Boston, Providence, Toronto, and London.
But less than a year after the initial opening of by CHLOE., Coscarelli lost ownership of her restaurant from a legal battle with her business partner. Coscarelli took to Instagram last week and shared, “While your Guac Burger may have been served in packaging that bore my name throughout the years, ‘by CHLOE.’ hasn't been by Chloe since nearly its inception. But after more than four years of fighting for what I knew was right, earlier this month I finally won. A judge issued an 87-page ruling in my favor and I regained my membership in the company I created—proof that passion, truth, and perseverance will always be ingredients for success.”
So, what does that mean? Coscarelli now owns 50% of by CHLOE., but the restaurant recently filed for bankruptcy, so she is on the lookout for investors. â£
“A million thank yous to all who believed in me during those dark moments when it felt like all hope was lost. Hope, of course, is never lost, and after darkness always comes light. â£Keep fighting for what you know in your heart is right, and I promise I will do the same,” said Coscarelli.
