Scott Enterprises faces a lawsuit after the company reportedly broke a contract years ahead of schedule.

Qdoba Restaurant Corporation is suing Scott Enterprises for terminating its contract three years early, according to a report in the Erie Times-News.

The deal ran from 2010 to 2020, but Scott Enterprises announced last summer it would close the Mexican restaurant as a part of an expansion project in its Peach Street plaza.

The case is filed in the Erie County Court of Common Pleas.

Qdoba is seeking more than $113,000 in damages.

A spokesperson from Scott Enterprises issued a short statement Monday that said, "The lawsuit has no merit, and we expect it to be resolved very soon."
