This original Ponderosa Steakhouse, located in the resort town of Ludington, MI on US-10 Hwy, is owned by two shareholders, one of whom is under a court order to put up for sale 100% of his shares in the operator, Ran-Starr, Inc. The Court has ordered a minimum starting bid of $125,000.00. Final bid will include an additional amount representing the auctioneer fees. In addition, bidders will need to deposit 10% ($12,500.00) with the auctioneer before bidding (any non-winning bidder will receive their deposit back). Upon completion, the sale will be reviewed by and requires the approval of the Western District of Michigan Bankruptcy Court, Judge James W. Boyd, Case No.: 15-01567.
