Carlsbad-based Hot Dog on a Stick has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the company confirmed to NBC 7.

Hot Dog on a Stick, which is often found in mall food courts, sells corn dogs, lemonade and other fair foods.

According to a news release from the company, Hot Dog on a Stick signed many of its leases during the height of the real estate bubble. As the economy declined, so did customers at shopping malls.

The company said it will renegotiate leases as part of its restructuring plan.

Hot Dog on a Stick operates 93 stores in the western part of the country and Hawaii, including nine in San Diego County, according to the company’s website.

The company said it will be “business as usual” during court proceedings.
