On January 11, 2024, a Pizza Hut delivery driver in Youngstown, Ohio filed a class action suit against Bluegrass Pizza and, the former owners of the Bluegrass stores, Hallrich, Inc.
The driver seeks to recover unpaid vehicle expenses for herself and fellow drivers who work/worked for the companies in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Indiana, or elsewhere. The plaintiff claims that the company broke the law by failing to properly reimburse its delivery drivers for their automobile expenses. Because the company did not keep records of or reimburse for actual expenses, the plaintiff claims the drivers are entitled to receive at least the IRS standard business mileage rate, a per-mile rate (currently $.67 per mile) set by the government each year.

The plaintiff alleges that, in or around February 2022, Hallrich, Inc., sold its stores to SFR X Holdings, LLC d/b/a/ Bluegrass Pizza.
