Luby's/Wyatt's/Piccadilly Cafeteria's in Historic Houston Posted March 31 On 3/16/2007 at 4:57 AM, KewpieCleaners said: I seem to recall that Luby's sold some of their cafeterias fairly early on, and part of the agreement was that Luby's-owned cafeterias could not bear that name where non-Luby's owned cafeterias existed. This is the reason for the "Romana Cafeterias", which were identical to Luby's (even down to the little girl on the logo). They were "Ramada Cafeteria" before Bandera Partners, the parent company of Luby's, bought them. They ruined the cafeterias, changed recipes to cut corners. It was never the same. I miss Ramada.

That's how I'm interpreting the part about their agreement not to name those buildings Luby's, which is why they called them Romana. But your first sentence says that Luby's sold some of their cafeterias. What am I missing?
