PHILADELPHIA – A Philadelphia food services company says it has been left feeling burned by a barbecue restaurant which formerly operated in Honey Brook, charging it with breach of contract.

Sysco Philadelphia, LLC of Philadelphia filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on June 11 versus Something Grilled, LLC and Salvatore Paterno, both of Honey Brook.

“On May 24, 2011, Something Grilled entered into a Customer Account Agreement with Sysco, wherein Sysco would supply goods to the defendant on an account basis in exchange for payment by defendant Grilled,” the lawsuit says.

Defendant Paterno made personal guaranties on Oct. 28, 2013 and May 23, 2017 in connection with this agreement and from Jan. 31 through March 1 of this year, Sysco made deliveries to Something Grilled in accordance with the same agreement, the suit says. As of June 7, there allegedly remained an unpaid balance of $9,950.65, inclusive of accrued interest, with interest continuing to accrue at a rate of $4.69 per day.

For counts of breach of contract, breach of guaranty and account stated, the plaintiff is seeking damages not in excess of $50,000, plus reasonable attorney’s fees and costs, interest, costs of suit, and such other and further relief as may be just and equitable.

The plaintiff is represented by Sergio I. Scuteri of Capehart & Scatchard, in Mount Laurel, N.J.
