PHILADELPHIA – A Bensalem seafood distributor is pursuing legal action against a North Philadelphia restaurant, claiming it breached an agreement made to provide compensation in exchange for seafood supplied to the restaurant.
Hesh’s Seafood, Inc. of Bensalem filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Oct. 31 versus Victoria’s Kitchen, LLC, also of Philadelphia.
The parties entered into an agreement for Hesh’s Seafood to provide certain goods to Victoria’s Kitchen through May of this year, including: Chilean Salmon Fillet, Indonesian Crab Meat, Scottish Salmon Fillet, Shell-On Tiger Shrimp, Frozen Tilapia, Peeled & Deveined Shrimp and Individually Quick Frozen Bay Scallops.
The total price of the goods was $9,831.57, according to records filed with the complaint. But although demand has been made by Hesh’s Seafood to Victoria’s Kitchen for that amount, it has allegedly not been paid to date. Along with that unpaid balance, the plaintiff also seeks to recoup all costs of collection and attorney’s fees, $3,450. Combining the two amounts, it totals $13,281.57.
For counts of breach of contract, unjust enrichment and quantum meruit, the plaintiff is seeking damages of $13,281.57, plus costs.
The plaintiff is represented by James W. Adelman of Morris & Adelman, in Bala Cynwyd.
