An early mover in the healthy packaged meals game has ended its run after a decade. Austin-based My Fit Foods announced on its website over the weekend that it had closed all of its Austin locations, as the Statesman reported Sunday. The closures come two-and-a-half years after a court battle began over control of the My Fit Food brand. My Fit Foods founder, Mario Mendias, who was at the center of the battle in 2014, was arrested in 2015 for possession of a controlled substance, and at the time the company told the Austin Business Journal that the arrest would not affect the “growth trajectory” of the company.
The Dallas Morning News also reported that the chain has closed all eight of its Dallas location.
