As expected, NPC International filed for bankruptcy after restaurant shutdowns led to losses.

The franchisee operator runs more than 1,225 Pizza Hut (NYSE:YUM) and over 385 Wendy's (NASDAQ:WEN) stores in the U.S.

The bankruptcy filing includes a plan for the company to keep operating and to sell some of the restaurants.
