Disney has taken legal action against the operator of Restaurant Marrakesh and other Morocco pavilion shops and restaurants in the form of a UCC Financing Statement.
This filing will claim collateral against “all goods, inventory, Furnishings, and all other items of personal property belonging to [Marrakesh Moroccan Restaurant LLC]…[in all] restaurants, cafes, quick service restaurants, retail areas, concession areas, kiosks, hostess stands, back-of-house areas, storage areas, office areas, and any other areas where [the aforementioned company] does business.”
Although this may come as a surprise to some Marrakesh Moroccan Restaurant LLC has fallen on hard times as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic and subsequent drop in tourism. In April the company filed for a PPP (Paycheck Protection Program) loan offered by the Federal government to the tune of $1-2 million in order to continue paying their 260 employees.
More recently, their quick service location at EPCOT, Tangierine Café, was forced to close after initially reopening with the park due to a lack of demand.
