Austin-based My Fit Foods posted a notice on its website announcing the closure of all of its stores effective immediately.
The company, founded in 2006, has stores in Austin and San Antonio. The company expanded to a total of 80 locations in five states nationwide. It specialized in creating healthy prepared meals for customers.
“Since 2006 My Fit Foods has been on a mission to make healthy eating easy and accessible for everyone,” according to the post on its website. “We’ve enjoyed getting to know you, and we are proud that we have made a difference in many of your lives. It is with a heavy heart that we announce the closure of all our stores. We know that you have depended on us to support your healthy habits, and we are deeply sorry for any inconvenience our closure may have caused you.”
My Fit Foods raised more than $42 million in private equity from investors, according to a 2014 Statesman story. The company had been embroiled in a lawsuit with the investors and the company’s founder, Mario Mendias, over control of My Fit Foods, which had been experiencing financial difficulties, according to the story.
