Bill the Butcher's Shareholders Helped Buy a $2.25M Queen Anne Home for its CEO

They just didn't know it.

Last week, Eater reported that all Bill the Butcher locations have closed while the Seattle-based business reassesses its finances. Now, The Seattle Times is reporting that over the course of two years the cash-strapped company spent "hundreds of thousands" of dollars to help CEO J'Amy Owens purchase a $2.25M home on Galer St. in Queen Anne. The publicly traded company did not disclose to stockholders that its "corporate facilities" were where Owens lived with her family.

Eater's sister site Curbed has details and photos of the 5-BR, 5,000-square-foot house. Owens reportedly moved out last weekend.
