Piccadilly Cafeterias is a chain of cafeteria-style restaurants found primarily in the Southern United States.

The company began with a single cafeteria in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 1944, founded by T.H. Hamilton. Today, the chain operates 130 locations in 15 states.

The company expanded in 1998 when it took over one of its major competitors, Morrison's Cafeterias.[1]

Piccadilly filed for bankruptcy in 2003 and was acquired by the Yucaipa Companies, a private equity firm, in 2004.[2]

Operating 81 restaurants, having 91 food service accounts and 3,464 full- and part-time employees, Piccadilly Restaurants filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy again on September 14, 2012.
