An Illinois corporation is suing a Madison County restaurant, alleging an unpaid debt and breach of contract.

Fox River Foods Inc. filed a lawsuit Dec. 28 in Madison County Circuit Court against Orhan Celik, doing business as Frank's Restaurant and doing business as Harvest Restaurant.

According to the complaint, on March 25, 2009, and again on March 12, 2012, Fox River Foods and Frank's Restaurant entered into two contracts. The plaintiff agreed to supply goods to the defendant and the defendant agreed to pay the plaintiff for those goods, the suit says, and the amount for those goods totaled $78,200.

Fox River Foods alleges it has performed its obligations under the contract but the defendant still owes the outstanding total, plus an interest rate of 18 percent per year from June 6, 2013. 

The plaintiff seeks the money it is owed. It also seeks attorney fees, collection costs and court costs. It is represented by attorney Michael A. Kasperek of Vogler & Associates LLC in St. Louis.

Madison County Circuit Court case number 15-L-1682
