Restaurant mergers and acquisitions: Indie edition 2019

This year saw a lot of mergers and acquisitions. Some restaurants were being saved from bankruptcy (like Gigi's Cupcakes) and others were being acquired for bigger and grander things (see Cheesecake Factory and Fox Restaurant Groups) while others continued moving around the indie scene.

Restaurants Unlimited, Kigo, Garden Bar and more changed hands this year. Here are the 12 mergers and acquisitions across independent restaurants.
