JOHNSTOWN – A former Power House Subs operator in Ducansville and his son are being sued over allegations they violated a noncompete contract by operating a competing sub shop and used Power House "secret recipes."
REVZIP LLC and Power House Subs Corp. LLC filed a complaint Nov. 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Johnstown Division against Michael McDonnell, doing business as Supreme Fundraising and Catering; Jacob Bearer; Dana Bearer; and others alleging breach of contract.
According to the suit, the defendants, who are former operators of a Power House Subs, opened their own sub shop on Nov. 15 offering fundraising, catering and boxed lunches. The plaintiffs claim the defendants violated their purchase agreement, which included agreeing not to compete with Power House for two years after leaving or being terminated.
The plaintiffs seek damages, an order for the transfer and emails and inquiries to them from the defendants. They are represented by Briar Siljander of Trio Law Firm PLC in Highland, Michigan
